Veterans & First Responders Grants Program

Veterans & First Responders Grants Program

In partnership with The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride, Movember has announced a new mental health grants funding program in support of Veterans and First Responders, as well as their families. The purpose of the funding is to identify those current programs showing promise in improving the mental health of men in these groups and to build the evidence for effective interventions.

An initial investment of $6.34M is being earmarked over the next two years to support First Responder Initiatives in New Zealand, Ireland, the UK and the US as well as Veteran and First Responder Initiatives in Australia and Canada. A minimum of eight programs will be funded with a focus on those programs that have already shown promise in improving mental health and/or suicide prevention outcomes for these groups.

This investment includes a funding allocation of $1,000,000 over two years for two programs in Australia.

Applications close: 23 November 2020.
