The ANZAC Centenary Program – Armistice Day Grants

The office of Susan Lamb MP is now accepting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for grants through the Armistice Centenary Grant Program (ACGP).

Commencing in 2014, the ANZAC Day Program was established to commemorate the departure of the first convoy of ships in WWI. The 100th Anniversary of the Armistice will conclude on Remembrance Day on 11 November 2018.

In commemoration of the 100th Year Anniversary, the ACGP is providing funding opportunities for local community-based commemorative projects and activities that signify the end of WWI.

$50,000 is available for eligible projects in Longman with the potential to provide grants between $3,000 and $50,000.

Some examples of projects that may be eligible for funding include, but are not limited to:

  • New war memorials which will be the focus of community commemoration.
  • New honour boards/rolls or plaques.
  • School initiatives, such as projects undertaken by students focusing on military involvement and the social impact on the community.
