Funding for veterans helping veterans

The Nationals Duty Senator for Richmond John Williams today announced Federal government funding for essential advocacy and welfare services for veterans, serving members and their families, war widows and widowers in the Tweed Heads area.

Senator Williams said Tweed Heads and Coolangatta R.S.L. Sub-branch has been awarded $14,658 through the Building Excellence in Support and Training (BEST) grants program.

He said grants under the programme help fund salaries for trained advocates and pension staff, essential office supplies, computer equipment, internet access and other administrative needs.
