The Australian Government is inviting organisations through an open non-competitive process to apply for grant funding under the Veteran and Community Grants Program from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.

The objective of the Program is to maintain and improve the independence and quality of life for members of the veteran community by providing funding for projects that support activities and services to sustain or enhance health and wellbeing.

The expected outcomes of the Program are to:

  • Deliver projects that are sustainable, financially viable and have an ongoing benefit for members of the veteran community;
  • Deliver projects that increase opportunities for members of the veteran community, associated with social activity and community participation and/or improve health behaviours and support healthy places.
