Community Grant Program

Port of Brisbane has a long and proud history of supporting a wide range of organisations that deliver valuable community and environmental projects locally and across the region. 

Since 2011, Port of Brisbane has awarded around $2 million in sponsorships and initiatives to community sponsorships and initiatives across south-east Queensland.

Every year, our $100,000 Community Grant Program provides community organisations with a vital funding boost to help them continue their important work.

This year’s Port of Brisbane Community Grant recipients have put forward a range of innovative and exciting projects, and we are looking forward to working with our new partners as they deliver positive outcomes for the community.

Individual organisations are eligible to apply for funding up to $15,000.
