The Tully RSL Sub-branch has received a welcome boost thanks to grant funding that will help improve their efforts to honour the service and sacrifice of local servicemen and women.
Northern based Government Senator Ian Macdonald said the Tully RSL Sub-branch has received $4,000 as part of the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service grants program to restore the immediate surrounds of the Tully Cenotaph, to improve access and safety.
“This project will honour the local men and women who have served, and continue to serve in defence of our nation,” Senator Macdonald said.
“The commitment of organisations like the Tully RSL Sub-branch help to ensure our community, with its proud defence heritage, can continue to preserve and honour our rich local history.”
Senator Macdonald said the Saluting Their Service Community Commemorative Grants program provides up to $4,000 for an individual project.
The program is a rolling grants program, meaning applications are accepted at any time.
Local community groups interested in applying for funding under the Saluting Their Service grants program should contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ Commemorative Grants team on 1800 026 185 or email [email protected].
