Member for Barker Tony Pasin has announced over $34,400 in Australian Government grant funding for the Tanunda RSL sub-branch to bring together RSL branches from across South Australia to produce a statewide history program, including an online podcast and an exhibition at the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival 2020.

“I congratulate the Tanunda RSL for this successful grant application through the Australian Government’s Veteran and Community Grants program,” Tony Pasin said.

“The Tanunda RSL has a well-deserved reputation in the local community for its commitment to recognising and supporting those who have served and sacrificed for our nation.”

Mr Pasin said these grants are funding fantastic projects across Barker that directly support our veterans and their families and have an ongoing benefit for the veteran community

“The benefits of this Veteran and Community Grants funding will also flow on to the local community,” Mr Pasin said.

Ex-service and community organisations, veteran groups and private organisations that contribute to the health and welfare of the veteran community are encouraged to apply for funding through the DVA Veteran and Community Grants program.

“The dedication and hard work of organisations such as the Tanunda RSL sub-branch ensure veterans and their families receive essential services, support and opportunities allowing them to continue active roles in their local communities,” Mr Pasin said.

“The Australian Government will continue to invest in and support to organisations helping veterans and their community.”
