Metung RSL will receive $11,000 for a new roof and a solar PV system under the Veterans Minor Capital Works Grant Program.
Nationals Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, is delighted that Metung RSL has won a share of the $1.4 million announced recently by the state government to fund projects that support veterans.
“This is good news and a just reward for the hard work of the Metung RSL committee, led by President Forbes McQuitty,” said Mr Bull.
“The Metung RSL clubrooms are a valuable asset to the community and this money will go a long way toward improving them for everyone’s enjoyment.”
Secretary of the Metung RSL, Howard Womersley, said the grant would help to give the facilities a whole new lease of life.
“Our initial proposal was to just install a solar PV system to reduce our energy costs, but when we looked into it we realised that the old roof needed an upgrade too, so our grant submission was expanded to incorporate both,” said Mr Womersley.
The Veterans Minor Capital Works Grant Program grants are made available for projects which support building and facility improvements for not-for-profit organisations delivering services to veterans and their families.
