I am encouraging the local community to apply for funding under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program.
The grants program announced by the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Dan Tehan will open in November this year and support projects or activities that commemorate the end of the First World War.
Up to $50,000 is available to organisations living in Griffith. Every electorate across Australia will receive up to $50,000 for local projects that appropriately commemorate the end of the war 100 years ago.
One-off grants of between $3,000 and $50,000 are available and I encourage all those in Griffith who want to commemorate this significant time to submit an expression of interest to my office.
Members of Parliament will be required to consult their community organisations or create a new Community Consultation Committee, whose role will be to seek the community’s views on how best to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice locally.
The Committee will also assist me in reviewing all proposals before an application is submitted to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
Applications open on 11 November 2017 and close on 28 February 2018. Expressions of interest in the grants can be lodged with my office prior to the applications opening. More information is available at www.dva.gov.au or by calling 1800 555 254.
Clinicians, community representatives and health professionals who want to make a difference for people in the Brisbane South area are invited to join one of Brisbane South PHN’s advisory councils.
Brisbane South PHN’s Clinical Council and Community Advisory Council have been providing positive support for health initiatives in the region since the establishment of the PHN two years ago. The end of the current term provides the opportunity to refresh the membership base.
The Clinical Council assists Brisbane South PHN to develop local strategies that will improve the operation of the health care system for patients, while the Community Advisory Council advises on local issues to better meet the unique needs of the community. Together they are tasked with informing and guiding the development of Brisbane South PHN strategy through recommendations to the Brisbane South PHN Board.
To ensure the councils focus on local needs, it is preferred that applicants live or work within the Brisbane South PHN boundaries. People who have strong links within the community are encouraged to apply.
Applications will close at 5pm Friday, 6 October 2017.
Interested members may complete the application and send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
