RACQ Foundation offers support

Community groups affected by COVID-19 can apply for funding help.

The RACQ Foundation is offering support to Queensland community groups impacted by COVID-19.

RACQ Foundation spokesperson Renee Smith said while funding had historically only been issued to community groups impacted by natural disasters, the COVID-19 crisis had seen the Foundation make a special exemption.

“Whether you’re a local community group that has lost other forms of sponsorship, advertising revenue or patronage due to COVID-19, or an organisation involved in reconnecting older Queenslanders with their community, we encourage you to apply,” Ms Smith said.

“We want to make sure no vulnerable Queenslander is left behind as a result of a community service shutting down.”

Affected groups can apply for grants up to $20,000. For more information and to apply for funding, click here.
