Applications Open For Grants To Support Veteran Service Clubs

Released on June 17, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan is providing $100,000 in 2020-21 to continue supporting the important work of veteran service clubs across the province.

“For a second year, our government is proud to provide grants under the Saskatchewan Veteran Service Club Support Program,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “This funding allows us to honour our fallen heroes and provide community access to essential facilities in our province.”

This program is delivered in collaboration with the Royal Canadian Legion Saskatchewan Command and the Army, Navy, Air Force Veterans (ANAVETS), Saskatchewan Provincial Command.  Registered, non-profit veteran service clubs based in Saskatchewan are eligible to apply for grants up to $5,000.

Applications are now being accepted and must be received by August 14, 2020 at midnight.  All Proposals will be required to meet relevant COVID-19 restrictions.

“We are very appreciative of the support from the provincial government,” Royal Canadian Legion Saskatchewan Command President Keith Andrews said.  “The funds last year were utilized throughout the province and it really helped our branches complete various projects they may not have been able to without it.”

This program provides grants toward facility improvement projects, upgrades, renovations and repairs to support community access to programming, meetings and events.  Grant money can also be used toward special events, programs and activities that engage the public and advance the work of veteran service organizations.

“Our members are looking forward to what this program will provide to improving our units this year and we are enjoying the results of last year’s successful applications,” ANAVETS Saskatchewan Provincial Command President Rick Taylor said.  “Thanks for making this possible again this year!”

More information about the program, guidelines, application and eligibility are available through the Royal Canadian Legion Saskatchewan Command at 306-525-8739 or at admin@sasklegion.ca.
