This program is open to RSL Clubs, RSL sub-branches, Ex-Service Organisations (ESOs), and other organisations with a demonstrated commitment to veterans and their families.

Overview:

The health, safety and wellbeing of Tasmanians is our number one priority as we face the challenge of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Tasmanian Government is helping RSL Clubs, RSL sub-branches, Ex-Service Organisations (ESO’s) and other organisations supporting veterans and their families through a dedicated $500,000 program to support those organisations impacted because of COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions. These impacts may include:

  • organisations required to limit or cease commercial operations and incurred costs (direct or indirect) by doing so; and/or
  • organisations who have incurred costs associated with supporting its members or clients above what would have otherwise been reasonably incurred should the COVID-19 Pandemic not have occurred.

Communities, Sport and Recreation (CSR) in the Department of Communities Tasmania will administer the Program in one round.

For further information, please contact Communities, Sport and Recreation by emailing csrgrants@communities.tas.gov.au or phoning on 1800 204 224.
