Veterans groups encouraged to apply for grants to improve quality of life
Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan has encouraged veteran’s groups throughout Indi to apply for grants for projects through the Commonwealth-funded Veteran and Community Grants program.
“Ex-service and veterans groups play an important role supporting those who have served their country,” Ms McGowan said.
“The grants are an opportunity to honour the sacrifice of our veterans through projects that have an ongoing benefit to their health or quality of life.”
Recipients under previous rounds of grants include the Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club Wangaratta, Vietnam Veterans’ Association Wodonga, Corryong Men’s Shed, and the Wodonga, Benalla and Bright RSL branches. Projects included a bicycle trailer, outdoor furniture, bus trips and a barbecue.
Eligible projects include the upgrade of facilities to improve venue accessibility, computer equipment and social outings. Applications can be accepted at any time. For more information visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website.
