$42,750 to help Nanango RSL Sub Branch to preserve wartime heritage and support veterans

The RSL Qld Nanango Sub Branch has been awarded $42,750 in veteran grants – $32,750 under the Veteran and Community Grants program and $10,000 from the Saluting Their Service program.

Member for Maranoa David Littleproud said both grants were an important part of the Australian Government’s commitment to honouring wartime heritage, as well as improving the independence and quality of life for members of the veteran community.

“The Veteran Community Grants program grant will help deliver practical activities and services to support the health and wellbeing of veterans and their families in the Nanango area,” Mr Littleproud said.

“I have enormous respect for the critical role our ex-service organisations play in providing mateship, advocacy and support and these grants increase opportunities for members to engage in social and community activities and improve health behaviours.”

The service of veterans from the Nanango community will be further recognised with a $10,000 grant to install cabinets to display military memorabilia through the Saluting Their Service program.

“This commemorative display project will continue the tradition of remembrance, and I look forward to seeing the finished work,” Mr Littleproud said.

Four Maranoa organisations were among the 129 recipients, representing ex-service organisations, local councils, schools, and historical societies.

“All four Maranoa projects provide authentic ways to commemorate and reflect on the sacrifice of those who have served from Maranoa communities – from research to Honour Rolls, memorabilia displays and uniforms for mounted commemorative events.

“It’s clear from the number and calibre of applications that our communities continue to look for new and improved ways to commemorate the service of our veterans, with many exploring modern technologies and reaching new audiences.”

Saluting Their Service is a national grants program. For further details visit the Saluting Their Service page on the Community Grants Hub website.

The Australian Government is investing $32 million this financial year in grant programs to help the many groups that provide complementary services to our veterans.
