The latest round of the Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) and the Anzac Community Grants Program (ACGP) is now accepting applications.

A total of $1 million has been invested into the revitalisation of local war memorials during the Centenary of Anzac, ensuring regional communities across NSW have a place to remember the service and sacrifice of defence personnel.

New funding of $175,000 is available to help protect and repair local war memorials and to support projects which commemorate or support veterans and their families.

I encourage Heathcote community groups, RSL sub-branches, schools and councils to apply before applications close on Remembrance Day.

The CWMF provides grants of up to $10,000 to protect, conserve and repair war memorials including statues, honour rolls and memorial halls which commemorate the Anzac legacy.

The ACGP provides grants of up to $2,000 to schools, community organisations and veterans groups to recognise Australia’s military service, educate a new generation and support the NSW veteran community.

Applications are open until Remembrance Day, Sunday 11 November 2018. For more information, please click here.
