Ross Vasta the Member for Bonner today announced Government funding for a local project to honour Australia’s wartime history.
Mr Vasta said Manly-Lota RSL Sub-branch would receive $2727 to enable them to purchase glass display cabinets for memorabilia as part of the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service grants program.
“It’s important that our community continues to honour the service and sacrifice of the men and women who serve in defence of our nation,” Mr Vasta said.
“Local organisations, such as Manly-Lota RSL Sub-Branch, are ensuring that we honour our military history in ways that are meaningful to our community.
“I congratulate them on their project and look forward to seeing the cabinets in all their glory when the project is completed.”
Mr Vasta encouraged local groups to apply for funding to support community projects that honoured our military history.
The Saluting Their Service Community Commemorative Grants program provides up to $4,000 for an individual project. It is a rolling grants program, so applications are accepted at any time.
Local community organisations interested in applying for funding under the Saluting Their Service grants program should contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ Commemorative Grants team on 1800 555 254 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
