If you’re a local community organisation or a not-for-profit, Port of Brisbane is encouraging you to check out its $100,000 Community Grant Program, which is open now.

Individual, eligible projects can apply for up to $15,000 in grant funding, with applications closing Sunday 30 April.

One of last year’s worthy recipients was the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard, who received funding to contribute to improving the facilities at its Manly base, as was the bayside’s hugely successful local arts festival, The Wynnum Fringe.

Organisations with projects across the fields of education, community, and environment should consider the grant funding, with First Nations organisations strongly encouraged to apply. It’s open to eligible organisations from the bayside through to the Lockyer Valley and the Darling Downs, where the Port’s customers and supply chain partners operate.

Since the Port’s community grant program started in 2013, it has provided $950,000 to support 137 community organisations.

The Port encourages interested organisations to head to its website for more information and to apply: www.portbris.com.au.
