Hardworking community organisations in the Toowoomba North Electorate are set for a funding boost as they receive their share of funding in the latest round of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund grant program.

You can’t put a price on what these grants mean for the people involved, the communities they serve and the difference it will make to the lives of everyday people.
