There are various grants that community based organisations and not-for-profits can apply for. Many organisations rely on these to continue their great work. Grants are available through various levels of government and from private sources.
Skilling for Queenslanders for Work
The Queensland Government has reintroduced the highly successful Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, with an investment of $240 million over four years to support up to 32,000 Queenslanders into work.
Skilling Queenslanders for Work provides training to people who are under-utilised or under-employed in the labour market.
After a very successful first round in 2015 the Queensland Government has opened it up for a second round.
Funding for Sports and Recreation
Local sport and recreation clubs not only promote the benefits of physical activity and a healthy well being, they are a valuable asset to communities—to bring everyone together and create a friendly local environment.
A new program of sport and recreation funding has been announced by the Palaszczuk Government with a $125.5 million three year commitment.
We strongly urge all sport and recreation clubs in Springwood to see how this funding can work for your organisation and make a start on applications.
Funding for each program will include:
- Get Started Vouchers—$15 million over three years for vouchers of up to $150 to assist children and young people who can least afford to join a sport or recreation club.
- Get Going Clubs—$3.5 million per year for funding of up to $7500 for equipment and projects that improve access to sport and recreation activities.
- Get Playing Places and Spaces—$13 million per round for funding of up to $150,000 for new or upgraded sport and recreation facilities.
- Get Playing Plus—for funding between $200,000 and $1.5 million for new or upgraded sport and recreation facilities that meet regional and community needs.
- Female Faciliites Fund - $15 million funding to provide grants up to $500,000 to build or upgrade fit-for-purpose female amenities and change room facilities
