About the GCBF funding guidelines

When accessing the online grants portal—to register, apply for funding, submit a variation or acquit an approved grant—you agree that you have read, understood and are subject to the funding guidelines.

We recommend you read all the information on this page—then review 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 grant funding process.

At the end of each page under ‘Read next’, a link will take you to the next section.

Once you have read these guidelines, you can refer to the step-by-step instructions for applying and using the GCBF grant.

Rules, breaches and enforcement


Breaches of these funding guidelines will result in:

  • the organisation being ineligible
  • granted funds being recalled.

Quality assurance checks

We regularly perform quality assurance checks (including site visits) on grant applications that have been submitted.

These checks are made to ensure that all information provided can be proved and that the grant was only spent on approved items and according to the funding guidelines.

Terms and conditions

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

Section 8.1 of the terms and conditions does not relate to GCBF grants. If successful, the organisation will not receive the GST on the taxable supply.

Translating and interpreting assistance

Interpreter services are available for speakers of other languages. Call 1800 512 451 and ask for an interpreter.


We collect personal information, including your name, email address and telephone number.
