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.
Andrew Constance, member for Bega, called for applications in the latest round of the Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) and the Anzac Community Grants Program (ACGP).
Mr Constance said the CWMF provides 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.
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,” said Mr Constance.
Applications for both grant programs are open until Remembrance Day, Saturday 11 November 2017. For more information, please visit: www.veteransnsw.smartygrants.com.au
