Flood help still available: RACQ

RACQ is calling for funding applications from community and sporting organisations in the Central Highlands region still struggling to recover from last summer's natural disasters.

Set up in January as part of a $20 million assistance package, the RACQ Foundation's primary purpose is to help affected community organisations recover and charity organisations to provide ongoing assistance to flood and cyclone victims.

Just last week the Emerald Community Kindergarten officially opened its new playground after it was rebuilt with an $81,500 donation from the RACQ Foundation.

RACQ Group CEO Ian Gillespie said more than 92 grassroots community and sporting organisations across Queensland had been allocated more than $5 million from the RACQ Foundation's $8 million funding pool.

"Almost 12 months down the track, many communities across Queensland are still recovering," Gillespie said.

"We want to ensure those groups that haven't previously applied for Foundation funding know that support is available."
