Community grant opportunity for flood-affected regions

Country to Coast Queensland’s vision is to support people in our region to live their healthiest lives. We work with our community and partners to deliver and ensure leading primary health.

One of the significant challenges impacting the health and well-being of people in our region is the occurrence of natural disasters such as floods, cyclones, and bushfires.

Currently, CCQ is committed to enhancing the health and well-being of communities situated in areas affected by floods, which include the Gympie Regional Council local government area, Maryborough (statistical area 3), and the Noosa Council local government area.
