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.
Member for Willoughby Tim James said grants of up to $10,000 are available to help with projects such as conservation assessments, honour roll restoration, and repairs to war memorial structures and halls.
“Last week we commemorated Remembrance Day, which saw veterans, families and friends gather at local war memorials to pay respect and honour our veterans,” Mr James said.
“This funding 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.”
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.
