Thriving Queensland Communities grants - Round two 2019

Seventy-two neighbourhood and community centres across Queensland will share in over $800,000 under the Thriving Queensland Communities Grants program - Round Two 2019. Successful recipients of the one-off grants will run events, deliver projects or purchase equipment to help Queensland communities thrive.

The Queensland Government created the Thriving Queensland Communities Grants, which will award neighbourhood and community centres between $2,000 and $20,000 to help them continue to be vital places where people come together, and where people go when they need support.
