VA provides project funding in excess of $1.2 million for Aussie veteran health and wellbeing

Earlier this month Minister for Veterans' Affairs Alan Griffin (ALP - Bruce, VIC) announced funding of more than $1.2 million to support 78 health and wellbeing initiatives for veterans and their families across Australia.

"I'm pleased to announce that more than $1.2 million (AUD) has been allocated in this round of the Veteran & Community Grants program. The Funding will benefit some 26,000 veterans, war widows and widowers and their families by supporting a range of initiatives including health, nutrition and exercise sessions," said Griffin in a press release.

Veteran and community grants are available to ex-service and community organisations, veteran representative groups and private organisations that contribute to the health and welfare of the veteran community. The VA provides a website to visit for further information here.
