Before you apply

Please read the guidelines carefully before completing this application.

This application form is for COMMUNITY ORGANISATIONS providing a community service, activity or facility for the benefit of Brisbane residents, including not-for-profit housing providers. 

The Community Support Funding Program provides financial assistance to community groups facing financial hardship.

Successful community groups and service providers are credited a percentage of their annual general rates on the next available general rates notice.

Eligible community groups and not-for-profit housing organisation applicants must demonstrate that they:

  • are an incorporated body with not-for-profit objectives
  • paid General Rates to Brisbane City Council through 2019/20, and
  • increase access to social goods and services in Brisbane.

Preference will be given to groups that have less than $50,000 operational surplus, excluding funds from the sale of assets.

Ineligible applicants include:

  • gaming machine licensed organisations
  • lessees of Brisbane City Council
  • kindergarten and child care organisations
  • properties that already receive general rates rebates (including through the partial Rates Remission Scheme) and
  • properties that are located on Crown land.

Note, most fields in this form are mandatory and if not completed your form will not be able to be submitted. An error message will highlight which fields require completion.
