Two local ex-service organisations have secured funding through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Building Excellence in Support and Training (BEST) program.
Singleton RSL Sub-branch will receive $7,511 and Hunter Legacy Appeals Fund will receive $9,384.
BEST grants assist the largely voluntary ex-service organisations to help the veteran and defence communities, and their families, access Department of Veterans’ Affairs entitlements and services.
“This funding will help to provide advocacy and support services for veterans and their families and I congratulate both organisations for their ongoing commitment to the local veteran community” Mr Fitzgibbon said.
