Veterans get boost to health and wellbeing initiatives from Australian government

Today the Australian Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Warren Snowdon, MP, announced funding for 62 projects that will benefit the health and welfare of veterans across Australia.

Mr Snowdon said the funding is part of the Australian Government’s Veteran & Community Grants program, which provides support for ex-service and community organisations.

“I am pleased to announce $555,589 has been allocated towards 62 projects around the country that help veterans, war widows and widowers lead healthier and more fulsome lives,” he said.

“This funding will assist a range of initiatives and activities, from undertaking bus trips to reduce social isolation, to purchasing equipment to produce community newsletters and enhance social activities.”

Organisations interested in applying for funding are encouraged to visit here or contact their nearest DVA office on 133 254 (metropolitan callers) or 1800 555 254.
