Queensland LGBTIQ+ Alliance funding now available

Eligible organisations can now apply for up to $200,000 (excl GST) in start-up funding to establish a contemporary and highly visible Queensland LGBTIQ+ Alliance. The funding will be delivered over 2 years.

The funding will support engagement with LGBTIQ+ individuals and communities, including those in rural, regional, and remote locations, to co-design, establish and build an Alliance. The Alliance will provide a platform for LGBTIQ+ individuals and communities to have a stronger voice.

The successful applicant is required to engage with LGBTIQ+ communities, individuals, and families to:

  • determine the best model and characteristics for a contemporary and dynamic Alliance
  • co-design an operating framework, including terms of reference, governance, and accountabilities
  • establish and build the Alliance
  • explore and secure ongoing sources of revenue and partnerships to support the long-term work of the Alliance.

Organisations may submit an application as a collective, consortium or other partnership model from any sector. They must demonstrate their ability to achieve positive engagements and a strong network across Queensland’s LGBTIQ+ community.
