NEW FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR ANZAC MEMORIAL UPGRADE PROJECTS

Monday, 11 September 2017

NEW funding of $175,000 is now available to help communities protect and repair local war memorials and to support projects which commemorate the service of current and former NSW service men and women.

Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today called for applications in the latest round of the Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) and the ANZAC Community Grants Program (ACGP).

Mr Marshall said the CWMF provided grants of up to $10,000 for local war memorial projects, including conservation works and protection.

“There are two rounds a year each offering $125,000, closing on ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day,” Mr Marshall said.

“The $50,000 ACGP provides grants of up to $2,000 to schools, community and veterans groups to educate the community on the service and sacrifice of military personnel, support activities benefiting veterans, and engage with the community.

“The majority of projects proposed for the latest ACGP round were applications to support ANZAC Day commemorative activities.”

Mr Marshall said the NSW Government’s investment in local and state war memorials helped ensure that the service and sacrifice of the state’s war veterans is remembered and appreciated.

Applications for both grant programs are open until Saturday, 11 November 2017. For more information, please visit www.centenaryofanzac.nsw.gov.au
