Confirmation of Eligibility

I confirm, as an authorised representative of the organisation, that:

  • I have read and understand the program Guidelines,
  • I am able to demonstrate alignment between the project and the aims of this program, and
  • the project is located in Tasmania and has not already commenced or been completed. 

I also confirm that the organisation meets one of the following criteria:

Minor capital works and equipment purchase

  • Open to RSL clubs, RSL sub-branches, and ex-service clubs and organisations **.

Welfare Initiatives

  • Open to RSL clubs, RSL sub-branches, ex-service clubs and organisations (note, for-profit organisations and businesses can only apply for funds that will directly support veterans. Grant funds cannot be used to pay for salaries or other operational expenses) **.

War Memorials – Repair, maintenance and construction

  • Open to RSL clubs, RSL sub-branches, and ex-service clubs and organisations **.
  • Open to not-for-profit organisations, local councils and schools.

These organisations must demonstrate that they are responsible for the maintenance of the memorial, and do not have a dedicated source of funding to undertake repairs; and

Higher priority will be given to organisations that demonstrate support (such as a letter of support) for the project from an RSL or ex-service organisation.

Not-for-profit organisations must be incorporated.

** Ex-service clubs and organisations that are not directly associated with an RSL sub-branch or an ex-service organisation must demonstrate evidence of organisational commitment to the ex-serving community - for example, a copy of the constitution.

Please note: State and Australian Government agencies, tertiary institutions, political parties, for-profit organisations and individuals/sole traders are not eligible to receive funding.
