The funding round has delivered up to $35,000 per grant for regional committees, totalling to a whopping $502, 022 given across nineteen organisations Queensland wide.
Member for Warrego Ann Leahy welcomed the recent funding boost with a number of local groups and associations benefitting from the grants.
