The Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) Round 94 will open mid-July and will close at 11.59pm on 31 August 2017.

Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF)

Geographical area: Whole of Queensland
Available funding: Grants from $500 to $35,000

Objective: To allocate funding to not-for-profit community groups to enhance their capacity to provide services, leisure activities and opportunities for Queensland communities.

How much funding can an organisation apply for? Applications can be submitted for funding of between $500 and $35,000. If the cost of items requested or purchased is more than the approved amount, it is the organisation’s responsibility to fund the difference.

How does an organisation apply? Organisations must register and apply for funding on the GCBF online portal. Before registering or applying, representatives of the organisations must thoroughly read and understand these guidelines. The guidelines are updated every round. Please ensure you review the guidelines each time you apply.

How often can an organisation apply? An eligible organisation can submit one application per funding round provided it does not have an approved application from a previous funding round that has not been acquitted. A legal entity is permitted to sponsor multiple organisations in any one funding round, provided the legal entity does not have an approved application from a previous funding where the acquittal due date has passed.

Closing dates There are four funding rounds per year. Funding rounds open approximately six weeks prior to the closing date and applications can only be submitted when a round is open. Funding rounds close at 11.59pm on 28 February, 31 May, 31 August and 30 November. Applications cannot be accepted if they are lodged at or after midnight on the closing dates.
