Increased grants to community groups
The Labor Party has announced a plan to increase the Community Centre Infrastructure Fund from $3 million to $10.5 million over the next three years through Queensland’s increased share of GST revenue.
This pledge by Labor was followed by a $4 million commitment by the LNP to make grants of between $5,000 and $15,000 available to community groups.
PeakCare is pleased that both parties recognise the cost pressures facing community groups and welcome their pledges to assist them in meeting these demands.
If you have a view or opinion about the pledges that have been made by either or both parties to increase grants to community groups, please enter a comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
