The state government grants are part of the Gambling Benefit Fund to develop community services across Australia.

Almost $32,000 will go to McAuley college to upgrade its facility and buy equipment, and Rathdowney memorial grounds will receive almost $31,000 to install a solar system and battery.

St Mary's Parish will also receive $15,000 to go towards a new mower.

State MP Jon Krause said the funding was a share of more than $200,000 going to the Scenic Rim Region in round 110 of the scheme.

"This terrific outcome would not have occurred without many hardworking volunteers giving their time and energy to complete the grant application process," Mr Krause said.

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

"I commend these groups for the wonderful work they do and encourage other community groups to apply for Round 112 of the GCBF. Not-for-profit groups can apply for grants from $500 to $35,000."

Non-for-profit groups can apply for grants from $500 up to $35,000, with applications for the next round open now, closing October 31.
