More than 50 clubs, community groups and non-for profit organisations across Brisbane will share in over $400,000 as beneficiaries of the Lord Mayor’s Better Suburbs Grants.
Congratulations to our local community groups from Bracken Ridge Ward who are worthy recipients of the latest round – JABIRU Community Services, Aspley Memorial Bowls Club and Bracken Ridge District Cricket Club.
Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the funding from the latest grant round would help continue the great work of community groups across the city.
“As our suburbs continue to grow, community groups are vital to establishing connections, promoting a healthy lifestyle and providing support to residents,” Cr Schrinner said.
“The Better Suburbs Grants are another way we are helping our clubs and community groups flourish.
The Community Support Category provides funding to improve community facilities, respond to local needs and build organisational capacity.
The recipients in this grant round have committed their funds to everything from servicing air conditioning units to upgrading safety equipment or developing strategic plans for future growth.
The Durack-Inala Bowls Club will be upgrading their ride on mower, while the Brisbane Netball Association in Chermside will be installing permanent shade shelters to provide a sun safe viewing experience for spectators.
Council is thrilled to be able to give back to our suburbs through community grants and help preserve their legacy for years to come.”
Since launching the program in 2021, the Lord Mayor’s Better Suburbs Grants has provided 279 groups with a share of over $5.1 million to put towards making our suburbs even better.
The next round of grants for the Community Support Category will open in late January 2024.
