This welcome funding boost is delivered four times a year to hundreds of charities and not-for profit groups throughout Queensland through the Gambling Community Benefit Fund to ensure they can continue their invaluable work within their community.   

Member for Toowoomba North, Trevor Watts said the grants were a financial injection many groups could not afford to miss out on and allowed dedicated volunteers to focus on continuing their good work or providing better facilities and equipment.

Mr Watts said the quarterly grants allowed profits from gambling to be invested back into grassroots services and facilities that benefited people from all walks of life in the Toowoomba North community.   

"You can't put a price on what these grants mean for the people involved, the communities they serve and the difference it will make to the lives of everyday people," he said.
