Isis RSL sub-branch was granted $4565.44 through the Build­ing Ex­cel­lence in Sup­port and Train­ing (BEST) grants pro­gram and would be used by lo­cal ex-ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions to con­tinue pro­vid­ing vi­tal help and ad­vice to the vet­eran com­mu­nity.

Fed­eral Mem­ber for Hin­kler Keith Pitt said our lo­cal ex-ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions are mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence in the lives of veter­ans and ADF per­son­nel by pro­vid­ing es­sen­tial ser­vices from a trusted source.

“The govern­ment is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing on­go­ing sup­port for our veter­ans,” Mr Pitt said.
