Chantelle Bohan, director of Veterans SA, explained that the new Veterans SA Seed Funding Grant was founded to help organisations undertake projects that support the veteran community including former service personnel and their families.

“There are a number of organisations in the South Australian community who are running community-based projects that provide veterans and their families with important social connections and positive engagement opportunities,” Bohan said. 

“This grant has been created to support those activities and will be allocated to projects where a real community need has been identified.

“The program recognises the evolving needs of veterans and their families and will provide funding to emerging organisations to help address these needs within our veteran  community.”

The creation of the Seeding Fund Grant by Veterans SA, a South Australian government agency, follows the foundation the Capacity Building Fund and Commemorative Services Fund.
