Funding Available for War Memorials in Blue Mountains
A total of $175,000 is available for projects across the state through the NSW Government’s Community War Memorials Fund and the Anzac Community Grants Program.
“It’s important the service and sacrifice of current and former NSW military personnel and our Anzac heritage, is remembered and protected in the community.”
“I encourage community groups, RSL sub-branches, schools and councils across the Blue Mountains to apply before applications close on Remembrance Day.” Mr Mallard said.
Minister for Veterans John Sidoti said every town or suburb has their own unique memorial that tells the story of local war history.
“If your local memorial is in need of repair or restoration, encourage your council or local ex-service organisation to apply for a grant.” Mr Sidoti said.
The Community War Memorials Fund provides grants of up to $10,000 to protect, conserve and repair war memorials including statues, honor rolls and memorial halls which commemorate the Anzac legacy.
The Anzac Community Grants Project provides grants of up to $2,000 to schools, community organizations and veterans groups to recognise Australia’s military service, educate a new generation and support the NSW veteran community.
Applications for both grants programs close on Remembrance Day, 11 November 2019.
