More than 660 community projects – including from councils – commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War are set to share in more than $5.3 million under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program.

Minister for Veterans' Affairs Darren Chester said he was impressed with the projects that had been approved for funding, and the innovative ways groups were commemorating the centenary of the First World War Armistice.

Successful community projects included those from:

  • City of Ryde
  • Canterbury-Bankstown Council
  • Liverpool City Council
  • Mackay Regional Council
  • Tablelands Regional Council
  • Berri Barmera Council
  • City of Marion
  • Clarence City Council
  • Knox City Council
  • Shire of Tammin, and
  • Shire of Wickepin.

Under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program, every Federal electorate had the opportunity to receive up to $50,000 for local projects that commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice on 11 November 2018.

This is the latest announcement of successful community projects awarded funding and details by state are available on the Minister’s website. Further announcements of successful grant recipients will be made over the coming weeks.
