Featured funding opportunities
Queensland Day Sponsorship Program - encourages Queenslanders to celebrate Queensland Day in a way that reflects the unique culture, heritage and aspirations of their own community. Each year, right across the state, Queenslanders mark this annual celebration of our people, places and achievements with barbeques, family fun days, festivals, street parades or an event unique to their community. Applications for sponsorship of up to $15,000 (exclusive of GST) are now being accepted for events being held to celebrate Queensland Day in 2019. Events should be held on Queensland Day, 6 June, however can be held between 1 and 9 June 2019. Applications close 10 September 2018.
