From The Team
Blink and it’s gone – 2023 went by in a flash! Thank you once again to all our fabulous clients, partners and friends for making the past year a busy and successful one. With heaps of larger infrastructure grants still under assessment we’re hopeful that there’ll be lots of happy customers getting good news in early 2024! If you’re one of them, we’ll look forward to celebrating with you!
Next year is election year for Councils and State government, so there could be some grant ‘down time’ during the caretaker period. We know that election cycles often bring a bit of uncertainty to grant availability, but also the possibility of new opportunities to watch out for. New grants are also expected to continue rolling out with a focus on preparation for the Brisbane 2032 Olympics – so if you have infrastructure improvements in mind, think seriously about getting your planning into gear, so you can be as ready as possible when funding rounds are announced.
From our families to yours, we wish you a wonderful and safe Christmas period, whatever you happen to be doing. A big shout out also, to all essential workers and Emergency Services personnel and volunteers across the state, who continue working around the clock to keep our communities safe. As our gift this year, we’ll be making a donation on behalf of our team and clients to the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) Gift Fund, to help fund critical equipment and training for SES volunteers.
