MBRC stimulus package
Moreton Bay Regional Council has approved a $15 million stimulus package to assist residents, community groups, community clubs and businesses experiencing financial distress.
It delivers specific relief actions for at-risk groups including ratepayers in financial distress, struggling community groups and clubs, and food businesses that have been forced to shut or fundamentally change their operations.

Community response and recovery program
$5 million for grants to community groups and clubs - applications are now open. Council will give preference to projects that use local procurement and local suppliers.
Accelerated asset maintenance works
$2 million in accelerated asset maintenance works to help keep businesses and local people employed on local projects. Businesses that haven't yet done so are urged to register with Council’s supplier marketplaces through our supplier portal. Council will give preference to projects that use local procurement and local suppliers.
