Veteran Wellbeing Grants (VWG) Program

ClosedGrant Closed: 12th of January 2024 - 9:00 pm Run By: Department of Veterans Affairs Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=4bffed1f-cfa5-472b-a94a-372e37527797

The Australian Government is inviting applications through a targeted competitive process to apply for funding under the Veteran Wellbeing Grants (VWG) Program.

The VWG Program provides funding for ex-service organisations (ESOs) to undertake projects and activities that sustain or enhance health and social wellbeing, build community capacity, potentially expand on existing projects and raise awareness of important issues faced by the veteran community.

The Australian Government has announced a total of up to $3.777 million (GST exclusive) for the VWG Program for the 2024–25 financial year. There is no set proportion of the $3.777 million allocated per stream. Applications will be considered under grant categories: Stream A Small Grants (up to a maximum of $50,000 per grant) and Stream B Large Grants (from $50,001 to a maximum of $150,000 per grant).

The objectives of the program are to:

  • maintain and improve the independence and quality of life for members of the veteran community by providing funding for activities and projects that sustain or enhance health and social wellbeing
  • deliver activities and projects to the veteran community that build community capacity for the future that is not already provided by Commonwealth or state funding
  • expand on existing activities and projects offered to veterans in new regions within Australia or in the development of new activities and projects that will be offered in more than one location
  • raise awareness of the important issues faced by the veteran community.
