CC-FNQ (Connected Communities Far North Queensland)

Formerly known as BaCC (Building Active Connected Communities) and Cairns Community Enterprise, CC-FNQ (Connected Communities Far North Queensland) was established in May 2009.

The CC-FNQ board is made up of independent professionals from a broad cross section of industries and disciplines in Far North Queensland to assist CC-FNQ in making the best decisions for the local community, and setting its strategic direction for the future.

CC-FNQ provides not-for-profit groups in the Cairns, Kuranda, Mossman and Douglas regions the ability to apply for grants without having to ask for donations or through time-consuming fundraising activities.

CC-FNQ offers grants up to $2,500 to not-for-profit organisations for projects that will have “overall benefit for the community.”

To date, more than $1,000,000 has been awarded through CC-FNQ for the benefit of more than 200 not-for-profit health, education, sporting and community organisations in the Cairns, Kuranda, Mossman and Port Douglas regions.
