The Australian Government is inviting ex-service organisations (ESOs), or non-ESOs working in partnership with an ESO, through a targeted competitive process to apply for grant funding under the Veteran and Community Grants Program from 3 November 2020 to 29 January 2021.
The objective of the program is to maintain and improve the independence and quality of life for members of the Australian veteran community by providing funding for projects that sustain or enhance health and wellbeing. The intended outcomes of the program are to deliver projects that:
– are sustainable and have an ongoing benefit for members of the Australian veteran community
– increase opportunities for members of the Australian veteran community to engage in social and community activities and/or improve health behaviours and support healthy places.
PLEASE NOTE: There have been a number of changes to the Veteran and Community Grants Program for 2020-21, including changes to the eligibility criteria, maximum grant value, and considerations for grants activities in the COVID-19 environment. Please ensure you read the Grant Opportunity Guidelines carefully before filling out an application form.
