Applications are now open for the Building Excellence in Support and Training (BEST) grants and Grants-in-Aid for ex-service organisations.
Nationals Member for Cowper, Luke Hartsuyker, encouraged local ex-service organisations on the Mid North Coast to apply.
“These grants help ex-service organisations provide vital advocacy services for current and former serving men and women which help veterans with their compensation claims and also ensure they get correct access to entitlements and services,” Mr Hartsuyker said.
“There are a number of excellent ex-service organisations on the Mid North Coast doing fantastic work in their local communities.”
Applications for both grant programs close on Thursday 19 April 2018 with payments to the successful applicants to be made before the end of 2018-19 financial year.
Mr Hartsuyker said assistance with the online lodgement process was available.
“Organisations needing assistance with online lodgement are encouraged to seek help through the Community Grants Hub.”
Support is also available by phone: 1800 020 283 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
