Projects focused on mental health support for younger veterans will be prioritised in the next round of the Supporting Younger Veterans grants program.
Minister for Veterans and Defence Personnel Darren Chester said the Supporting Younger Veterans grants help younger veterans and their families as they leave the Australian Defence Force and transition into civilian life.
Funded organisations will be required to provide a detailed report to Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) explaining how effective the funded projects were in helping younger veterans and their families. This information will allow DVA to continue to improve and deliver services that better meet the needs of younger veterans.
Applications are now open and will close on 1 October 2019.
