The NSW Government’s Community War Memorials Fund is now open.

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.

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, war memorial cleaning and conservation work, arborist advice for war memorial trees, security measures for memorials, repairs to war memorial structures and halls and improvements to the accessibility of memorials.

Round 2 of the 2023/24 Community War Memorials Fund will close at 5pm on 11th February 2024.

To be eligible for funding, the memorial must be listed on the NSW War Memorials Register.
