NEW FUNDING FOR ANZAC COMMUNITY PROJECTS
Written on the 28 September 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly MP, has announced that 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.
Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott MP has launched the 2017-18 ANZAC Community Grants Program (ACGP) and the 2017-18 Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) Round 1.
ANZAC Community Grants support local communities in raising public awareness of the ANZAC spirit and the sacrifice of our servicemen and women. Applications for amounts up to $2,000 can be made by schools, community organisations and historical societies for educational programs and commemorative activities.
Meanwhile, the Community War Memorial Fund provides grants for projects that protect and conserve existing war memorials across the state. Applications for amounts up to $10,000 can be made by veterans groups, community organisations and councils.
"I encourage eligible community groups to apply for these grants, which are made available by the NSW Government to foster and promote our history and heritage throughout our community," said Mr Conolly.
Applications for CWMF and ACGP grants are open until Remembrance Day, Saturday 11 November 2017. For information please visit:
