Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott recently announced the first round of 2017 funding for the Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) is now open.

The CWMF is designed to protect and repair local war memorials, which preserves the Anzac legacy.

Councils are being urged to apply for the fund, which provides the opportunity for all NSW communities to access up to $10,000.

Applications for the  Community War Memorials Fund are now open and close on Anzac Day, 25 April 2017

The NSW Government established the Community War Memorials Fund to help protect and conserve war memorials across NSW. Since the establishment of the program in 2008, grants have been provided for a wide range of projects including honour roll repair, war memorial cleaning and conservation work, arborist advice for war memorial trees, memorial conservation assessments, security measures for memorials, repairs to war memorial halls and improvements to the accessibility of memorials.

Grants will be considered by a State War Memorials Committee, which is comprised of senior representatives of the Returned and Services League of Australia NSW Branch, Public Works Advisory, the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and Veterans’ Affairs.
