The Andrews Labor Government is helping communities honour the sacrifice of our veterans, and giving their families the support they deserve.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney MP announced new ways the Labor Government is honouring the legacy of Victoria’s veterans, and giving their families new opportunities to study.
Our Commemoration and Community Education Program will help deliver projects that honour the extraordinary contribution of our veterans. Grants of up to $20,000 are available for new war memorials, commemorative events or education programs.
The Labor Government is also helping dependents under age 25 with the costs of education. Grants are available for education fees, books, school uniforms and other costs associated with getting a great education.
Our veterans gave us all a great gift. They’ve earned our support for the rest of their lives. That’s why we’re working hard to protect their welfare and give their service the fitting commemoration it deserves.
