Community benefit funding programs
Major change to community benefit funding programs
The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) Community Benefit Funds Unit (CBFU) distributes revenue from gaming taxes to various not-for-profit community groups throughout Queensland.
Previously, community groups could access 4 different funding programs depending on their location and eligibility. This has since been streamlined; the Gambling Community Benefit Fund now replaces the Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund (JCCBF), Breakwater Island Casino Community Benefit Fund (BICCB), Reef Hotel Casino Community Benefit Fund (RHCCBF) and the pre-existing Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF), as a single, statewide funding program.
The new, amalgamated Gambling Community Benefit Fund opens in mid-July and closes on 31 August 2014. We invite all eligible organisations to submit grant applications during this time.
