Treasurer and Member for Mulgrave, Curtis Pitt, says local community groups or individuals can now access the latest information on applying for financial grants with the release of the online Queensland Government Grants Booklet.
Mr Pitt said the booklet, available for downloading on the Queensland Treasury website (www.treasury.qld.gov.au), brought together in one place information on grants available to community groups or individuals.
“Whether you’re a sports group wanting to upgrade facilities or a conservation organisation looking to protect our local environment, there may be a government grant to help,” he said.
“The booklet is available online and my office is able to help with these and other grants.
“So if anyone wants to apply for funds they should contact my office on 4237 1100.”
Mr Pitt said the booklet also outlined subsidies and schemes to support individuals, for example the taxi subsidy scheme or the pensioner rate subsidy scheme.
It highlighted the diversity of grants programs available in Queensland across the government, including:
• various Advance Queensland grants
• research grants
• support to sporting and recreational clubs
• grants for arts organisations
• road safety grants
• support for eligible families to access kindergarten programs
• grants to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to conserve and protect natural and cultural resources.
The booklet does not include grants that have closed for the financial year, or grants available exclusively to local authorities.
