Closing Date & Time

The Australian Government is inviting applications through a targeted competitive process to apply for grant funding under the Veterans Community Care and Support Outcome – Grants-in-Aid Program.

The program aims to support national ex‑service organisations (ESOs) to provide coordinating and representational support within the Australian veteran and Defence community.

This program is open to bona fide national ESOs and provides funding to encourage cooperation and communication between the ex-service community, ESOs and the Australian Government. Funding for national ESOs aims to encourage the advancement of the objectives of ESOs.

The objective of the grant opportunity is to fund discrete projects or activities that address a specific problem or issue and will achieve a clear benefit to the Australian ex-service and Defence community.

The intended outcomes of the program are to:

  • encourage co-operation and communication between the ex-service community, ESOs and the Australian Government
  • assist ESOs to:
    • support their branches, sub-branches and affiliated organisations in performing advocacy, pensions and welfare work
    • advance the objectives of all ESOs more generally, including improved co‑operation and communication between national bodies, branches, sub‑branches and affiliated organisations on repatriation and military compensation matters.
