Veterans and their families on the Mornington Peninsula will benefit from Australian Government grant funding for local projects.
Mornington Peninsula Legacy Club Inc. has received $8,909.09 to assist with funding to purchase chairs, tables and a television under the Veteran and Community Grants program that supports important services and helps improve the lives of local veterans and their families.
Member for Dunkley, Chris Crewther MP, said the Mornington Peninsula Legacy Club Inc. had a well-deserved reputation for its commitment to improving the lives of those who have served our nation.
“There are many ways that as a community we honour the service and sacrifice of the men and women who serve in defence of our country and these grants help at a local level,” Mr Crewther said.
“The dedication and hard work of organisations such as Mornington Peninsula Legacy Club Inc. ensure veterans and their families receive services, support and opportunities that allow them to be a part of our community.”
Ex-service and community organisations, veterans’ groups and private organisations that contribute to the health and welfare of the veteran community are all eligible to apply for funding through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ (DVA) Veteran and Community Grantsprogram.
“The benefits of this Veteran and Community Grantsfunding will flow on to the entire community.”
