Funding provided for veterans projects in NSW

From Alstoneville in the state’s north and Howlong in the south, to Dareton and Gol Gol in the far west, more than 50 NSW communities have received funding to commemorate veterans across the state.

Minister for Transport and Veterans Affairs David Elliott announced more than $56,000 will be provided to a range of projects that commemorate and educate NSW communities about the service and sacrifices of current and former military servicemen and servicewomen.

“The Anzac Community Grants Program provides funding to some great projects and initiatives that recognise Australia’s war service history, educate a new generation and support the wellbeing of the NSW veteran community,” Mr Elliott said.

“It is wonderful to be visiting Milperra Public School today, and providing $1,000 in funding to contribute to the creation of a mural remembering the Anzacs in the school’s Centenary Garden.”

Member for East Hills Wendy Lindsay welcomed the investment for her community.

“I would like to acknowledge the students and staff at Milperra Public School for their vision to create a mural that remembers the Anzacs, which will allow future generations and new students to learn of this history,” she said.

“We are thankful for the sacrifices made by current serving members and our service men and women from over a century of service. This art will be a reflection of their dedication and the commitment my community has, to supporting our veterans.”

Projects that support activities benefiting the NSW veteran community have also received funding.
