DVA Veteran & Community grants program opens on the Community Grants Hub

Dear previous grant recipient,

 How you apply for a grant from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) is changing.

DVA is starting to use the Community Grants Hub (the Hub), which is a whole‑of‑government portal where you can search for different types of grants, lodge grant applications, and manage grants on-line.

The Veteran and Community Grants program is the first of DVA’s grants programs to open on the Hub from 20 February 2018.

If you wish to apply for a Veteran and Community grant you will need to submit a grant application online using the form on the Hub (www.communitygrants.gov.au).  To ensure your application is considered this financial year please apply before 28 February 2019.  Please note, paper grant applications will no longer be accepted.

The Hub contains information on the Veteran and Community Grants Program, such as grant guidelines, opening and closing dates, and instructions on how to complete and lodge your grants application.

For ease, instructions to help you with your on-line application are attached to this email.

You will also be able to get help desk support through the Hub by emailing support@communitygrants.gov.au or calling 1800 020 283.

If you think you may need help with your application please call or email the Hub as soon as possible to ask for help.  This will ensure any issues can be worked through in time for your application to be considered for funding.

Between February and July 2018 other DVA grants will be opening on the Community Grants Hub. The best way to keep across which grants are opening on the hub is to click on Subscribe for updates on the Community Grants Hub homepage: www.communitygrants.gov.au

For more information about the Community Grants Hub please visit www.communitygrants.gov.au or email support@communitygrants.gov.au or call on 1800 020 283.

Kind regards

John McDougall Save the Day!

R2000 dry plugs our start up

Tamborine Mountain hides many mysteries one of which involved out President John Mc D. Former ADI JohnCameron RTFV same time a Johns second stint 1965/66 in Vietnam sought advice on the R2000 on behalf of the collector and preserver of engines past Alan Robert.

John Mc D armed with his trusty 1964 R2000 Note Book ( in 64 the Aircraft were so new Manuals were coming later also the RAAF Techs who were trained in Canada were not in SVN on Johns 1st of 3 tours)

John double checked the Engine was all correctly together and, gave much advice which will not be found in Manuals and so the big moment came to apply the starter leads to the Batteries.

No clanks, no grinds just the sound of a sweet engine turning over… I WAS WORRIED AFTER THAT 12TH blade went past over the top it could fire up ..ha ha

But we now know it will and after further research into getting switches to make up a start/close panel, a pump for the fuel supply she will be a goer.

But…. if anyone brought home a caribou set of props in their kitbag WE WANT IT UP HERE (OR DC 3,4 or 6 set of props to cut down for static display runups) Know of any trading trading or for sale?..

Our Mr Caribou R2000 John Mc D has done it again ( not forgetting the owner who sourced parts to get it to this stage)
