Emergency service organisations in East Gippsland can apply for funding through the Emergency Services Volunteer Sustainability Grants Program, which opened recently.
With a number of local applicants successful in previous rounds, Gippsland East Nationals MP, Tim Bull, is encouraging more groups from across East Gippsland to seek funding.
“Grants of up to $50,000 are available to SES units, surf lifesaving clubs and other organisations identified in the Emergency Management Manual Victoria, and given we have had successful applicants in the past, I am sure we will have more in the future,” Mr Bull said.
“Funding can go towards training and development, community engagement, operational equipment, education and minor facility upgrades.
“Applications can be made by an individual volunteer, unit or club or agency.
“Our emergency services do a great job in keeping our communities safe so it is important they are supported.”
For more information or to apply for funding, visit emv.vic.gov.au/esvsgrants.
Applications are open until 9am on Wednesday, August 22.
