Support for volunteers to buy equipment

Emergency services workers and volunteers will get the  equipment and facilities they need to keep Victorians safe, as part of the Victorian Budget 2018/19.

$10 million has been set aside for volunteer sustainability grants. This program will not require co-contributions from brigades and enables them to focus on helping communities rather than fundraising.

This program will be in addition to the $13.34 million in funding for the Volunteer Emergency Services Equipment Program which recently opened for applications.
