Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich MP, has welcomed the allocation of $55,992.18 for three local community groups under the latest funding round of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Mr Holswich said organisations within the Pine Rivers electorate to receive funding in this round were:

Bray Park State School P&C Purchase stage curtain and lighting $31,818.18
Dayboro Community Kindergarten Association Inc Upgrade drainage and paving $6,500.00

"These grant programs are important for local community groups to help them provide the facilities and activities which make the Pine Rivers community a good place to live."

"The grants are designed for approved not-for-profit organisations and are not intended to replace existing sources of support for these organisations."

Funding under these grant programs is allocated quarterly. The majority of Queensland not-for-profit community organisations are eligible to apply, either in their own right (if incorporated) or through a sponsor (if not incorporated).
