Apply for a Community Grant before Remembrance Day
We’re looking to support projects that enrich communities and heighten understanding of our veterans’ efforts both past and present. Around 1,200 veterans transition into NSW communities from the Defence Force every year and we remain committed to supporting them after service. This is an opportunity to get projects off the ground, at a grassroots level across many communities.
The Hon Natalie Ward MLC, Minister for Veterans
Anzac Community Grant applications are open to individuals and not-for-profit organisations, including local government authorities, ex-service organisations, non-Government organisations and educational institutions.
Grants of up to $2,000 per organisation are available across four categories: 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.
Last year more than 40 projects were selected, including a replica battlefield trench, a digital image gallery of 600 photos, and woodwork to preserve a living memorial. The North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club received a grant to assist veterans in becoming qualified lifesavers through the Bronze Medallion course. “This encourages veterans to socialise and engage with their local communities, while recognising their defence force skills,” Club Life Member and Trustee Mark Cotter said.
Applications close at 5pm on Remembrance Day, 11 November 2021.
