Veterans, Memorial grants open

Grant programs for Veterans Capital Works and Restoring Community War Memorials and Avenues of Honour are open.

Nationals Member for Gippsland East and Shadow Minister for Veterans, Tim Bull, said the Veterans Capital Works Grant Program is offering grants of between $5,000 and up to $50,000 for building and facility improvements for not-for-profit organisations delivering services to veterans, their families and communities.

“In addition, the Restoring Community War Memorials and Avenues of Honour grant program is currently accepting grant applications for projects up to $30,000.

“I have recently written to all our RSL Sub-Branches and would encourage them to look closely at these opportunities.

“These funding streams are a fantastic opportunity for community groups to memorialise service records of our veterans in local regional communities.

“This program supports many local war memorials across Gippsland East that commemorate and immortalise the memory of those in our community who’ve served our country in war and peacekeeping operations.

“Ex-service organisations, local government authorities, not-for-profit organisations and educations institutions are encouraged to apply and make use of this recent funding round.

“Applications are now open until Monday 12 February 2024 and can be submitted online.”
