Organisations are eligible to apply if they are:
- an incorporated organisation established for the purpose of helping or supporting, or having a membership consisting of or including, veterans or dependants of veterans. This includes ex-service organisations.
- a local government authority, a school, or an incorporated not for profit organisation, provided that the applicant’s project has the purpose of educating the community about the significance of Australia’s military history or conducting services to commemorate Australia’s military history.
In addition, applicant organisations must:
- have an ABN
- have met requirements for any previous grants received from Veterans SA, such as acquitting or reporting on grants.
Organisations not meeting these requirements, such as unincorporated organisations, may partner with a lead applicant which meets eligibility requirements.
Applications must be authorised by an appropriate executive member of the organisation. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
An applicant may only submit one application. Should an applicant submit two or more applications, all applications may be deemed ineligible.
