Description:

The Australian Government is inviting ex-service organisations (ESOs), or non-ESOs working in partnership with an ESO, through a targeted competitive process to apply for grant funding under the SYV program.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • deliver services to the younger veterans’ community that build community capacity for the future and complement services already provided by the Commonwealth
  • expand on existing or well established services offered to the younger veterans’ community to new regions within Australia or in development of new services that will be offered in more than one location
  • raise awareness of the important issues faced by the younger veterans’ community.

The intended outcomes of the program are to:

  • support the development of well-researched and tailored services for the younger veterans’ community, with a particular focus on services supporting those at risk of experiencing poor mental health
  • develop capability within the veteran community that services the unique needs of the younger veterans’ community
  • fund organisations that can sustainably deliver services to the younger veterans’ community now and into the future
  • increase collaboration amongst organisations to expand services and harness existing expertise for the benefit of the younger veterans’ community
