Local community and ex-service organisation groups in Australia are set to receive a funding boost to remember the town’s military heroes in their own unique way.

Sarah Henderson, Senator for Victoria, said that the funding will go towards supporting communities as part of the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service grants program.

“These community/ex-service organisation groups are proud of our military history and this grant funding will enable them to commemorate military service in the region in a respectful way,” Senator Henderson said.

“Congratulations to the communities that will receive funding to deliver their projects which highlight the service and sacrifice of Australia’s service men and women in wars, conflicts and peace keeping operations,” Senator Henderson said.

The grants are part of more than $265,000 in Saluting Their Service grant funding being delivered to projects across Australia to commemorate Australia’s wartime heritage.

Senator Henderson said, “I encourage community and ex-service organisation groups to apply for funding for their projects and activities through the next round of Saluting Their Service grants.

“The memory of our brave service men and women will live on through these projects, helping to leave a lasting legacy in communities by educating future generations of Australians.”
