Grants of up to $10,000 are available to support the repair and conservation of war memorials across New South Wales.
The NSW Office for Veterans Affairs (OVA) will be accepting funding applications to the Community War Memorials Fund until 5pm on Anzac Day, 25 April 2019.
The Community War Memorials Fund supports projects that seek to protect, conserve and repair war memorials. The program funds works that are in-line with best practice conservation and has previously supported projects such as conservation management plans for war memorials, the repair and restoration of honour rolls, arborist advice for war memorial avenues and conservation works to war memorial halls.
War memorials must be recorded on the Register of War Memorials in NSW to be eligible for funding. Find out how to register a memorial here.
