The Australian Government is inviting applicants through an open competitive process to apply for grant funding during the 2019-20 financial year under Outcome 3.2 - Commemorative Activities - Saluting Their Service Commemorations Program. The Program is designed to preserve Australia’s wartime heritage and to involve people throughout the nation in a wide range of projects and activities that highlight the service and sacrifice of Australia’s service personnel in wars, conflicts and peace operations.
The objective of the Program is to acknowledge and commemorate those who served Australia and its allies in wars, conflicts and peace operations.
There are two categories of Grants available under the Program:
- Community Commemorative Grants: Grants up to a maximum of $4,000 available for local, community-based projects and activities
- Major Commemorative Grants: Grants available for major commemorative projects and activities that are significant from a national or state/territory perspective
