On 20 May 2014, a Bill was passed to amalgamate the 4 Community Benefit Funds into 1 statewide funding program.

The Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) has replaced the Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund, Breakwater Island Casino Community Benefit Fund, Reef Hotel Casino Community Benefit Fund and the pre-existing Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Eligible organisations will be able to apply for a maximum of $35,000 and this will involve completing just 1 application. There are 4 rounds each year.

Making it better for community groups

Community groups can be assured they will not be worse off. Amalgamating the funds now means that:

  1. all eligible organisations can apply for the same grant value
  2. the new process is more consistent and fair for all organisations across the state
  3. one application per round makes it easier for community groups to apply (no more applying to 4 separate funding programs, each with different grant limits, criteria and budget requirements).

For further information, please see the Gambling Community Benefit Fund Amalgamation fact sheet.
