As part of the community grants program, 35 applications were approved as well as an additional $177,739 going to the regions’ sports clubs from the state government.

Councillor for community, art, heritage, sport and recreation Danita Potter said it’s great news for the region.

Two of the major projects funded will be the resurfacing of the playing field at the Blackbutt Rugby League club and the development of disability amenities at the Nanango Soccer Club.

20 sporting groups across the region will share in the Queensland government funding.

South Burnett Mayor Brett Otto said these grants are a much needed injection into sport in the region.

“I am really pleased to see the Blackbutt rugby league field getting serviced, it’s great to see the club down there continuing to endure difficult times and continuing the great work they do,” Cr Otto said.
