Myall Lakes community groups can apply for $3,000 grants for projects supporting local veterans or boosting awareness of their role in Australia’s military history.
Nationals Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead, said applications are now open for the $100,000 Anzac Community Grants Program and urged locals to apply.
“Veterans past and present served to keep us safe and this is a great chance to recognise their sacrifices, while enriching our communities,” Mr Bromhead said.
“Maybe it’s restoring a medals’ display cabinet, creating an interactive remembrance garden or researching a local veteran; let’s see what our community ideas and needs are.”
Grants cover four categories: local community historical research and education; preservation or display of war memorabilia; public commemorative events; and support to members of the NSW veteran community.
Applications are open to individuals and not-for-profit organisations including local government authorities, non-government organisations, ex-service organisations and educational institutions.
Just over 50 projects were selected in 2021, including the purchase of memorabilia cabinets, the research of local veterans and commemorative murals.
Applications can be submitted online until 5pm on November 11 – Remembrance Day.
