Member for Eastern Metropolitan Region, Shaun Leane today announced that the Scout Association Victoria, in Mount Waverley will receive funding through the Victoria Remembers Minor Grants Program for transport for members and their families to visit the Shrine of Rememberance.
Victoria Remembers Minor grants provide funding for projects which honour or commemorate the service and sacrifice of veterans and educate the community about the contribution made by our veterans in their service to the nation and the state. The program also provides funding to organisations to assist with the educational needs of veterans’ dependants.
The Victoria Remembers Minor Grants Program is available to community organisations, local councils and educational institutions.
There will be two funding rounds of the Victoria Remembers Minor Grant Program this year and organisations wishing to apply for funding for ANZAC Day 2019 commemorative services are encouraged to apply in July 2018.

“It is through community projects such as these that all Victorians can learn more about our war related heritage and the stories of the brave women and men who have served their nation.”
