The Lord Mayor's COVID-19 Direct Assistance Program aims to assist not-for-profit organisations (community, cultural, sport and recreation) who hold a lease of a Council owned or managed community facility and are experiencing hardship due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, to help them to recommence their services and programs.
Funding of up to $10,000.00 (GST exclusive) is available for operational expenses and/or minor maintenance works.
Operational expenses: Funding towards operational expenses (incurred between 1 January 2020 and 30 June 2020) at Brisbane City Council community leased facilities.
Future minor maintenance works: Funding to undertake future maintenance or minor works at Council community leased facilities to be completed within 12 months of the notification date. Includes planned maintenance that may not occur due to loss of revenue (e.g. roof repairs, plumbing repairs, painting, general building works)
Refer to the program Guidelines for full eligibility criteria.
Eligible not-for-profit organisations may apply for each facility they lease. An organisation can act as an auspice for more than one application.
Applications will be assessed as they are submitted, and the Program will close once the available budget is expended.
