An extra $175,000 is available to help protect and repair local war memorials and support projects which commemorate or help veterans and their families, reports state Member for Dubbo Troy Grant.
He is urging people in the electorate to apply for the latest round of the Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) and the Anzac Community Grants Program (ACGP).
“I encourage community groups across the electorate, RSL sub-branches, schools and councils to apply before applications close on Remembrance Day,” Mr Grant said.
About $1 million has already been invested in war memorials in NSW during the Centenary of Anzac.
The CWMF provides grants of up to $10,000 to protect, conserve and repair war memorials including statues, honour rolls and memorial halls.
The ACGP provides grants of up to $2000 to schools, community organisations and veterans groups. For more information visit https://veteransnsw.smartygrants.com.au/.
