Cooroy Memorial Hall funding to support veterans' wellbeing

Published:

Veterans and community groups will be able to relax in the comfort of new furnishings at the Cooroy Memorial Hall, with a $65,000 Veteran and Community Grant announced today by Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien.

"Organisations like the Cooroy Memorial Hall play a vital role in supporting our veterans and their families, and this funding for new tables and chairs means they can provide a comfortable setting for events," Mr O'Brien said.

"There are more than 3,417 veterans and their families living in Wide Bay, and ex-service member clubs and programs help them to access services and be socially active.

"Congratulations to the Cooroy Memorial Hall for this successful application and thank you for the ongoing support that you offer to the veteran community."

The Veteran & Community Grants program helps local ex-service organisations, veterans groups, community and private organisations deliver projects that promote a healthy and independent lifestyle. More than $480,000 in grants were awarded through this round.

These programs, which are provided through local organisations, are an important factor in ensuring veterans and their families continue to get the support that they need.

The Veteran & Community Grants program is a great source of funding to assist veterans, their families and communities and I encourage organisations interested in applying for funding to review the grant guidelines and submit an application.
