About the GCBF guidelines

We recommend you read this page—as well as every page of the guidelines, starting with organisation eligibility for the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF)—to ensure your organisation fully understands each stage of the funding process.

At the bottom of each web page, click the ‘Next section’ button to proceed to the next section of the guidelines.

Once you have read these guidelines, follow the step-by-step instructions on how to apply for the GCBF grant.

Access the GCBF online grants portal to register your organisation, apply for funding, or vary/acquit (i.e. reconcile) an approved grant. By logging in, you agree you have read, understood and will follow the funding guidelines.

GCBF rules, breaches and enforcement

If you breach these funding guidelines, your organisation won’t be eligible for funding and the grant will be recalled.

We regularly perform quality assurance checks—including site visits—to check the information you have provided can be verified, and that the grant was only spent on approved items and according to the funding guidelines.

Read the Terms and conditions (PDF, 269KB) for the GCBF (and other funding opportunities).

Section 8.1 of the terms and conditions does not apply to GCBF grants. Successful organisations will not receive GST on the taxable supply.

Translating and interpreting assistance

Translation and interpreting services are available for people who speak other languages. Call 1800 512 451 and ask for an interpreter.


We collect personal information—including your name, email address and phone number—so we can contact you to discuss your organisation’s application, if required. Your information may be shared with other government agencies and members of parliament.

We will only use your information for this purpose. It will otherwise not be used or disclosed unless authorised or required by law. Your personal information will be handled according to the Information Privacy Act 2009.

Note: If you provide an email address to us, your personal information in our communications with you will be stored on our email service provider’s servers, which may be outside Australia. By giving us your email address, you are consenting to the personal information contained within these emails being transferred outside Australia.
