Federal Member for Wide Bay, Llew O’Brien is encouraging ex-service organisations and community groups to submit expressions of interest for funding for local commemorative projects to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War in 2018.
 
“Funding from $3,000 to $50,000 is available to support local community projects and activities that commemorate the end of the First World War, and remember Australian service men and women from all conflicts,” Mr O’Brien said.
 
Up to $50,000 in total is available to organisations in Wide Bay.
 
“Next year, Australians will pause and reflect on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.  Australia’s population was less than five million people, yet 416,809 men enlisted, of whom more than 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.
 
“Australia’s involvement in the First World War began when Britain declared war on Germany on 4 August 1914.
 
“Every year on Anzac Day we mark anniversary of day the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) landed on Gallipoli in Turkey.  It is the day we honour the service and sacrifice of every Australian who served in the First World War and all those who have subsequently served.
 
“I encourage groups in Wide Bay to send in project proposals for the Coalition Government’s Armistice Centenary Grants Program to mark this important milestone in Australia’s history.”
 
The expressions of interest will be considered by a local committee and successful organisations will be invited to apply for funding.  Expressions of interest should be emailed to Llew.OBrien.MP@aph.gov.au by 5pm on 13 October 2017.
 
Organisations selected to apply for funding can submit their applications between 11 November 2017 and 28 February 2018.
 
More information is available at www.dva.gov.au or by calling 1800 555 254.
