Community groups are being encouraged to make an application for funds to conserve the state’s community war memorials under round two of the NSW Government’s Community War Memorials Fund.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said $125,000 would be available in round two with funding available to support the repair, protection and conservation of community war memorials across the state.
“This funding from the state is vitally important as it helps our local community protect our memorials, ensuring the service and sacrifice of our veterans is not forgotten,” Mr Crouch said.
“I encourage community organisations including memorial trusts, veteran groups and local councils to apply.”
Grants of up to $10,000 are available to help with projects like conservation assessments, honour roll restoration, and repairs to war memorial structures and halls.
Gosford RSL Sub-branch received funding in round 1 of the Community War Memorials Fund, for conservation work to Gosford Cenotaph.
“This is a wonderful project for our community and ensures that the service of our veterans will be remembered for generations to come,” Mr Crouch said.
Round 2 of the 2022/23 Community War Memorials Fund will close at 5pm on Monday 13 February 2023.
To be eligible for funding, the memorial must be listed on the NSW War Memorials Register.
