Overview

The Teddy Sheean VC Memorial Grants Program honours the sacrifice made by Edward 'Teddy' Sheean VC, as a representative of the many Tasmanians who gave their lives selflessly for others in the defence of our country during World War Two.

The Teddy Sheean VC Memorial Grants Program (the Grants Program) will provide funds to Tasmanian ex-service organisations and clubs for minor capital works, equipment purchases and welfare initiatives for veterans. Funds are also available to a range of organisations for the repair and maintenance of war memorials, and for the construction of new memorials in Tasmania.
