Anzac grants for communities

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram $100,000 is being offered to each federal electorate to commemorate the centenary of the First World War on Anzac Day. The grants, part of the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program which Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced in February will enable communities to celebrate Anzac Day in their own way. While there are no longer any living veterans of this war, there are many Australian families with links to our first Anzacs, and the grants are a way to engage them in a constructive way. As part of the initiative, a special Electorate Committee will be created to assist in seeking the views of the community on how best to commemorate the Centenary. Applications will open on 31 May 2013 and close on 28 February 2014. Grant funding will be available from 1 July 2013. The guidelines and application form are also available from the Anzac Centenary website at www.anzaccentenary.gov.aulast_img read more
