The construction arm of the light rail system is throwing a lifeline to local community groups.
GoldlinQ's construction partners have opened up the opportunity for local associations to apply for a $2,000 grant to use for whatever they need.
It’s hoped it will deliver financial support and social benefits to the communities where the $1 billion world-class tram system is being constructed.
These much needed grants just may be the boost the Coast requires, aiming to support our wide range of organizations that provide the much needed services to locals.
Pumping this money back into the community will also help businesses and future users affected by the construction of Queensland’s first rail system.
Some groups who may be eligible for the grants are those providing community benefits in the areas of healthy and active living, community, safety, youth, environment and public transport.
Consisting of 14 trams and 16 stations, the light rail system linking the University Hospital to Broadbeach is due to commence operations in 2014.
Applications for the first round of grants close 10 August with two rounds to be held in 2013.
