Funding support for emergency service volunteers

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy is encouraging emergency service organisations in western Victoria to apply for funding through the Emergency Services Volunteer Sustainability Grants Program which opened recently.

Ms Emma Kealy is encouraging more groups from across western Victoria to apply for funding after a number of local groups were successful in previous funding rounds.

Funding can go towards training and development, community engagement, operational equipment, education and minor facility upgrades.

An individual volunteer, unit, club or agency can make applications.

“Grants of up to $50,000 are available to SES units and other organisations identified in the Emergency Management Manual Victoria,” Ms Kealy said.

“Our emergency services do a fabulous job keeping our communities safe and it is important they are supported.”

“We have had successful applicants in the past so I encourage all eligible organisations to consider lodging an application for funding support.”

Applications close at 9am on Wednesday, August 22.
