The Armistice Centenary Grants Program (ACGP) provides grants of between $3,000 to $50,000 for local community-based projects and activities that commemorate the end of the First World War, remembering Australian service men and women from all conflicts and celebrate a just and secure peace.
The Australian Government has provided total funding of $7.5 million over two years for the Program. Each federal electorate has a funding pool of $50,000 available for commemorative projects. A Community Consultation Committee in each electorate will assist the local MP in seeking the local community's views on how to best commemorate the Centenary. Interested applicants must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the local member in the first instance.
Applicants must be invited to apply by their local MP to receive an application form and be eligible for an ACGP grant.
The closing date for applications has been extended by one month to 5pm (AEDT), 28 March 2018.
