Funding available for projects to honour veterans

The ANZAC Community Grants program offers grants up to $2000 for projects honouring veterans.

Applications are open to individuals and not-for-profit organisations including local government authorities, non-government organisations, ex-service organisations and educational institutions.

Grants cover four categories including local community historical research and education, preservation or display of war memorabilia, public commemorative events, arts and culture and support to members of the NSW veteran community.

More than 40 projects were selected across the state last year including a replica battlefield trench for high school students, a digital gallery of 600 photos and beach lifesaving training.

Minister for Veterans Natalie Ward said the grants program is one way the NSW Government is addressing key areas including wellbeing, education and recognition.

“Our veteran community grows by around 1,200 former Australian Defence Force personnel every year and we need to empower them to live fulfilling lives after service.”

Applications can be submitted online until 5pm on November 11 here.
