Supporting Younger Veterans

The Australian Government is inviting applications through a targeted competitive process to apply for grant funding under the Supporting Younger Veterans (SYV) program within Outcome 2.4: Veterans’ Community Care and Support.

The SYV program aims to foster the ability of ex-service organisations (ESOs) and non ex-service organisations to support the needs of younger veterans as they transition out of the Australian Defence Force (ADF), establish themselves into civilian life, and manage the challenges their ADF service presents through different stages of their civilian life.

In the 2019-20 funding round the priority is on activities that support the development of well-researched and tailored services for the younger veterans’ community, with a particular focus on services supporting those at risk of experiencing poor mental health.
