Veteran and Community Grants

What are Veteran and Community Grants?

Veteran and Community Grants are for activities and services which improve the health and wellbeing of members of the veteran community.

For example, the grant can provide seed funding for projects which promote a healthy lifestyle or help veterans to remain living independently in their own homes. They can also fund programs to reduce social isolation, support carers and improve access to community services.

All the details about:

  • what can be funded through Veteran and Community Grants
  • who is eligible to apply
  • what you need to include in your application

is in the Veteran and Community Grants Opportunity Guidelines (the guidelines).

Read the guidelines carefully before you start your application. You can find these guidelines and additional information about how to apply, on the Community Grants Hub.
