Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Darren Chester said he was pleased to announce the funding through the Grants-in-Aid program.

“The work of these organisations is invaluable and benefits many, by investing in them it is another way that we can say ‘thank you for your service’ to our veterans and the organisations that support them,” Mr Chester said.

Ex-service organisations throughout Australia receiving funding under this program provide various type of assistance to veterans.

“I would like to thank these organisations who tirelessly provide the essential support to veterans and their families,” Mr Chester said.

Applications for the next round of grants will opened in February 2019.

More information on the program is available through the Community Grants Hub.
