Neighbourhood and community centres across Queensland are encouraged to apply for a share of $800,000 under the latest round of the Thriving Queensland Communities Grants program.
The Thriving Queensland Communities grants are open to government-funded neighbourhood and community centres for projects and equipment.
All 124 Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors funded neighbourhood and community centres are eligible to apply for funds to support and build on existing networking and engagement with local communities, providing a stronger platform to listen and respond to community priorities.
Applications for funding from $2,000 - $20,000 are encouraged from neighbourhood and community centres for eligible activities that deliver family and community engagement activities, purchase equipment or resources that help the centre engage and support their community, and undertake relevant staff professional development.
Successful grant recipients from Round One remain eligible to apply for funds in Round Two.
View round information and access the application form on the SmartyGrants website.
New SmartyGrants users will be asked to register prior to accessing the application form.
