VESEP grants provide boost to volunteers

31 August 2020

Victoria’s emergency services are once again set to receive a boost via the opening of the 2020-21 Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Program (VESEP) grants.

The grants are an annual program which provides funding to Victorian emergency services volunteer groups to purchase essential operational equipment, vehicles and appliances and make minor facility improvements.

Under the program, the Government matches every $1 paid by volunteer groups with a $2 co-contribution up to $150,000.

The 2019-20 round of grants have provided approximately $14 million to volunteer organisations across the state. See the full list of grant recipients for 2019-20 (External link).
