Brisbane City Council: COVID-19 Direct Assistance Program Guidelines

Grants - Open grants, QLD Grants

Applications are now open. The Program will close when funding is expended.

Brisbane City Council is providing $3 million in direct financial assistance to community, cultural, and sport and recreational groups leasing a Council-owned or managed community facility, to help them rebuild and re-commence services to residents after the coronavirus pandemic.

The Lord Mayor’s COVID-19 Direct Assistance Program will help not-for-profit lessees cover the costs of operating expenses incurred during their forced closure. It will also support leaseholders who have been unable to do maintenance works on their buildings due to lack of revenue as a result of the pandemic.

Eligible organisations can apply for funding of up to $10,000 towards operating expenses incurred between 1 January 2020 and 30 June 2020, and future minor maintenance works at Council community leased facilities.
