Four Glass House volunteer and community groups will share in $15206.00 in local funding from the Newman Government to purchase essential equipment to continue their good work helping others.
Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP said this first round of the $4 million Caring for our Community grants program was delivering on a Newman Government election promise and recognised the valuable contribution community groups and their volunteers to better communities across Queensland.
“Queensland is a great state with great opportunities and the rollout of these grants is good news for our local community groups and community members,” Mr Powell said.
“These grants provide a fantastic opportunity to improve community facilities and upgrade resources whether it is a printer, computer or a fridge and a small boost like this can go a long way for our community groups and their volunteers.”
Communities Minister Tracy Davis said supporting community groups was a Queensland Government priority.
“I am confident that these Caring for our Community grants will help these local organisations continue to deliver benefits to even more Queenslanders,” Ms Davis said.
“Caring for Our Community program is one of our commitments to the people of Queensland and the Newman Government is proud to be delivering on our promise to support our communities.”
