O’Brien: Grants to recognise veterans now open
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien is encouraging local not-for-profit groups to apply for state government funding to support projects that mark 75 years since the end of World War II.
Mr O’Brien said there were three grant streams currently open to support veterans, including a one-off 75th Anniversary of the End of WWII Program.
The grants of up to $30,000 are designed to support events that recognise the milestone anniversary and have been announced alongside the annual Victoria Remembers Minor Grant and the Restoring Community War Memorials and Avenues of Honour Grant programs.
The minor grants support projects that commemorate service and sacrifice of our veterans while the restoration grants provide up to $30,000 to restore or improve existing memorials, honour rolls and avenues of honour.
“The 75th anniversary of the end of World War II is a substantial milestone and one that deserves significant recognition,” Mr O’Brien said.
“These grants are a great opportunity to recognise and pay tribute to those that fought and sacrificed to give us the life we enjoy today.
Groups seeking a letter of support from Mr O’Brien can contact him with details of their project at firstname.lastname@example.org.
