Emergency Services Grants and awards | May 17, 2018

Volunteer Emergency Service Grants Available

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy MP is encouraging local emergency service organisations to apply for funding through the 2018-19 Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Program (VESEP).

Ms Kealy said the program was open to the Country Fire Authority and Victorian State Emergency Services. 

“Our emergency services volunteers do a wonderful job in protecting the community and these grants will help ensure that when they are performing their roles, they have the equipment and facilities they need to do the job,” Ms Kealy said.

VESEP grants can be used to fund operational equipment, including new vehicles, trucks, light and medium tankers, trailers, watercraft, vessels and engines, or funding can be put towards minor building improvements.

VESEP funding will contribute $2 for every $1 of funding from the local volunteer group up to a maximum of $150,000.00 excluding GST.
