Last call for EOI of Armistice Day Centenary Grants

Member for Forrest Nola Marino is calling on expressions of interest for the Turnbull Government’s Armistice Centenary program as the expressions of interest phase has been extended.

The program marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 next year. It’s also another chapter in the Centenary of ANZAC commemorations.

“It’s been heartening to see Australia’s interest and respect for those who’ve served at war increase in the last few years,” Mrs Marino said.

“World War 1 has impacted a lot of Australian families through various levels of service.

“With many RSLs, schools and other organisations in the South West, I’d like to see a number of different applicants show interest in this program.”

Funding can be sought for up to half the cost of proposed project, with a minimum grant amount of $3,000.

Applications will be reviewed by a committee and impressive plans will be asked to apply when the program opens on November 11.

“Ex-service organisations, not-for-profits, schools and other educational institutions, museums and cultural institutions, historical associations and Australian local government bodies are all eligible to apply for funding through the program.”

Applicants must submit a Project Plan and Budget from the Department of Veterans Affairs’ website: grants.gov.au/?event=public.FO.show&FOUUID=4FA214B1-EF58-E51D-4F6AF571D3B8C582.
