Coffs Coast community groups can apply for $3,000 grants for projects supporting local veterans or boosting awareness of their role in Australia’s military history.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said applications are open for the $100,000 Anzac Community Grants Program and he encourages locals to apply.

“Veterans past and present served to keep us safe and this is a great chance to recognise their sacrifices, while enriching our communities,” Mr Singh said.

“Maybe it’s restoring a medals display cabinet, creating an interactive remembrance garden or researching a local veteran; let’s see what our community ideas and needs are.”

Grants cover four categories:

  • local community historical research and education;
  • preservation or display of war memorabilia;
  • public commemorative events; and
  • support to members of the NSW veteran community.

Applications are open to individuals and not-for-profit organisations including local government authorities, non-government organisations, ex-service organisations and educational institutions.

Applications can be submitted online until 5pm on 11 November:
