$50,000 announced for Armistice Day Centenary Grants

$50,000 announced for Armistice Day Centenary Grants
Member for Flinders, Greg Hunt MP, today encouraged the local community to apply for funding under the recently announced Armistice Centenary Grants Program.

The grants program announced by the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Dan Tehan will open in November this year and support projects or activities that commemorate the end of the First World War.

Minister Hunt said up to $50,000 is available to organisations within the electorate of Flinders.

“The moment the guns fell silent on November 11, 1918, is a moment entrenched not only in the history of Australia, but the world as a whole,” Mr Hunt said.

“It brought to an end to one of the bloodiest conflicts in human history and one in which Australian troops played a vital part.

“In commemoration of this global event, every electorate across Australia will receive up to $50,000 for local projects to appropriately commemorate the end of the war 100 years ago.

“One-off grants of between $3,000 and $50,000 are available and I encourage all those in Flinders who want to contribute to a significant period in our nation’s history to submit an expression of interest to my office.”

Members of Parliament will be required to consult their community organisations or create a new Community Consultation Committee, whose role will be to seek the community’s views on how best to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice locally.

“The Committee will also assist me in reviewing all proposals before an application is submitted to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs,” Mr Hunt said.

Expressions of interest open today and close on 19 January 2018. They can be made on via this form or by calling Greg Hunt’s electoral office on 5979 3188.

More information is available at or by calling 1800 555 254.
