The Australian Government is inviting applications through an open competitive process to apply for grant funding during the 2019-20 financial year under the Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program (the program).

The program aims to preserve Australia’s wartime heritage and involve people around the nation in a wide range of projects and activities that highlight the service and sacrifice of Australia’s service personnel in wars, conflicts and peace operations. Projects and activities should promote appreciation and understanding of the experiences of service and the roles that those who served have played in shaping the nation.

There are two categories of grants available under the program:

1.      Community Grants (STS-CG)

Grants to a maximum of $10,000 are available for local, community-based projects and activities.

2.      Major Grants (STS-MG)

Grants between $10,001 and $150,000 are available for major commemorative projects and activities that are significant from a national, state, territory and/or regional perspective.

For the intended outcomes of the grant opportunity, refer to the Grant Opportunity Guidelines.

If your project involves restoring/changing a memorial, there may be heritage considerations. Information is available from your state or territory government heritage body, or at the Department of Veterans’ Affairs website.


To be eligible you must be one of the following entity types:

  • Cooperative
  • Company
  • Corporate State or Territory Entity
  • Incorporated Association
  • Indigenous Corporation

  • Non-corporate State or Territory Entity
  • Non-Corporate State or Territory Statutory Authority
  • Statutory Entity
  • Trustee on behalf of a Trust
  • Unincorporated Association – grant activities up to $10,000 only.
