9 December, 2018 –
The Queensland Government has launched the Queensland Veterans’ Memorial Grants Program, with $1.2 million in funding dedicated to monuments, memorials and public memorial sites to honour our servicemen and women.
Veterans’ groups and other eligible community organisations can apply for grants of up to $30,000 to create or conserve a legacy for future generations.
Between 2014 and 2018 more than 330 community projects and events were awarded over $6.85 million in funding under the Queensland Anzac Centenary Grants Program for things like memorials and honour boards.
The Queensland Veterans’ Memorial Grants Program will provide another welcome opportunity for communities to pay tribute to our veterans and ensure their proud legacy is preserved for future generations.
There will be three grant rounds held over three years that will assist projects that promote the virtues demonstrated by veterans both at home and on the war front.
Round one applications are now open and close on 10 March 2019.
