Gambling and Racing Commission Advisory Committee
The Gambling and Racing Commission Advisory Committee (GRCAC) represents a broad section of the ACT community, providing views, opinions and recommendations to support the GRC. There is a particular emphasis on gambling harm prevention and minimisation, including recommendations and oversight of projects, programs and research funded by the Problem Gambling Assistance Fund (PGAF).

This includes the gambling and racing industry, health and counselling service providers, ACT Government Directorates, academia, not-for-profit sector and other organisations involved in gambling harm prevention and minimisation.
The GRCAC core group has members from the following organisations:
- Access Canberra (Chair)
- Canberra Community Clubs
- Clubs ACT
- Youth Coalition
- ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS)
- Health Directorate.
Other organisations or individuals may be invited to participate in GRCAC discussions as required.
