"It is wonderful to see that these community groups will be able to install facilities and purchase equipment to help them maintain their services."

Jordan MP Charis Mullen said community groups received a share in $111,704 in her electorate.

"I was so pleased to be able to connect our local community groups with representatives of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund at the recent Jordan Electorate Grants Information Evening," Ms Mullen said.

"Having the opportunity to learn about what makes for a successful application should mean more groups have the confidence to apply for funding moving forward."
