Description:

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 is an ongoing amalgamation of the Veteran and Community Grants (V&CG) and Supporting Younger Veterans (SYV) Grants programs. The amalgamation, which is in line with recommendations made by the ‘Productivity Commission Report – A better way to support veterans’, provides funding under Stream A Small Grants and Stream B Large Grants. As a result, there have been several changes in the guidelines compared to previous V&CG and SYV program guidelines.

The Australian Government has announced a total of up to $3.552 million (GST exclusive) for the VWG Program for the 2022–23 financial year. There is no set proportion of the $3.552 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 projects that sustain or enhance health and social wellbeing
  • deliver services to the veteran community that build community capacity for the future that is not already provided by Commonwealth or state funding
  • expand on existing services offered to veterans in new regions within Australia or in the development of new services that will be offered in more than one location
  • raise awareness of the important issues faced by the veteran community.
