Community Legal Centres Queensland receive funding from a number of sources. This includes:
The Attorney-General's Department delivers programmes and policies to maintain and improve Australia's law and justice framework, and to strengthen our national security and emergency management.
The department manages the National Partnership Agreement on Legal Assistance Services, which provides Commonwealth funding for community legal centres and legal aid commissions via state and territory governments. The department also administers the Community Legal Services Programme, which supports the provision of legal assistance to the community by funding national service delivery projects, innovative pilot programmes, and programme support activities.

The Queensland Government allocates Queensland and Commonwealth funding for legal assistance services delivered by Legal Aid Queensland and community organisations (mostly Community Legal Centres). Community organisations receive funding to provide free legal assistance services to vulnerable and disadvantaged Queenslanders.
