Projects that previously received funding have provided a range of services, including personal coaching and peer support to disengaged and unemployed veterans, the training of young veterans as disaster response instructors, and innovative treatments to mental health challenges aimed at improving resilience, mental well being, psychological stress, post traumatic stress disorder symptoms and dysfunctional behaviours.

"The funded programs will directly help the mental, physical and social wellbeing of these younger veterans. They also raise the community awareness of the important issues faced by younger veterans. As the programs are well researched and sustainable they will be able to help many younger veterans over a number of years," Minister Chester said.

There is no maximum or minimum amount that can be sought for this grant opportunity and applications are open until 2pm on Tuesday, 14 August 2018. 

For information about how to apply for grants online, see the Community Grants Hub website or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs website.

Minister Chester said, "This is just one important initiative aimed at putting veterans and families first and I encourage organisations to apply for this round of grant funding."
