Armistice Centenary Grants Program

Federal Government’s Armistice Centenary Grants Program (ACGP)

I want to make sure our region is represented in this centenary commemorative funding as rural and remote communities committed so much to the war effort.  We must never forget all those who served and sacrificed to make our great nation what it is today.

The ACGP will support projects or activities in Maranoa – which will be held next year – to commemorate the end of the First World War.

Under the ACGP, grants will be available between $3000 and $50,000.  Every federal electorate across Australia will receive a total of $50,000 in funding.

The ACGP process:

  1. I am currently calling for expressions of interest (EOI) and will then invite suitable projects to go on to the next phase. Submissions must be received before 5pm on November 3.
  2. All EOI will be reviewed by my and an independent Community Consultant Committee, within the funding limitations of the program.
  3. A shortlist of applicants will then be invited to submit a formal application to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.  Successful applicants will be advised on the next phase of this process.

To ensure your EOI is considered for this commemorative funding, please complete the attached project plan, budget and be sure your project meets the Grant Opportunity Guidelines (please see attached documents).  Please email your EOI to David.Littleproud.MP@aph.gov.au before 5pm on November 3.

Please note: The EOI is the first phase of the Armistice Centenary Grants Program funding process and projects can only progress to the next phase if invited by their local Federal MP.  The Department of Veterans’ Affairs will make the final assessment of applicants and will only award funding to projects which meet the eligibility criteria – as outlined in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines – so please be sure to read this document before submitting your EOI.

For more information, please visit www.dva.gov.au or phone the Department of Veterans’ Affairs on 1800 555 254.

If you have any questions, please contact the my Dalby office on 4662 2715.
