The Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program will assist and encourage communities across Australia to undertake their own Anzac Centenary projects that commemorate the service and sacrifice of Australian Servicemen and Women in the First World War.
The program was announced by the Prime Minister, the Hon Julia Gillard MP and the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister on the Centenary of Anzac, the Hon Warren Snowdon MP, on 24 April 2012. The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) is responsible for administering the program.
The Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program is a key element of the Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary program through which funding of up to $100,000 will be made available for each Federal Member of Parliament (MP) to support projects in their electorate commemorating the First World War.
Further information, guidelines and application forms can be found at the 100 Years of ANZAC site.
