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.
For 12 years, Youngcare has been fighting to make a difference to the lives of young people with high care needs and their loved ones who care for them. However, there are still too many young Australians being left behind in, or facing the prospect of inappropriate housing.
Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants enhance the quality of life for young people (aged 18-65 years) with high care needs living at home and at risk of entering inappropriate housing.
One-off grants of $2,000-$10,000 are available for the provision of essential equipment, home modifications or services enabling young people with high care needs to remain at home surrounded by loved ones with the choice and dignity we all deserve.Read more
