Community Drought Support grants
The Community Drought Support program aims to strengthen the resilience of drought-affected Queenslanders by building on existing community support mechanisms to increase access and participation in the community.
Across Queensland, organisations will share in up to $5 million of funding, with successful recipients of the one-off grants utilising the funding to provide:
- flexible financial hardship funding that alleviates cost of living pressures and hardship for individuals, households and communities and
- community events or activities, in drought-affected local government areas, that increase community participation and improve access to support and social connectedness.
Applying for funding
The 2021–2022 funding round closed on 29 March 2022.
Recipients of past funding rounds
In 2020, the Queensland Government provided $5 million in funding to 61 organisations, and 71 organisations in 2021.
