Community War Memorials Fund

Community War Memorials Fund

Applications to Round 2 will open on Remembrance Day 2022 (11 November).

The NSW Government established the Community War Memorials Fund to help conserve, repair and protect war memorials across NSW. Since the establishment of the program in 2008, grants have been provided for a wide range of projects including conservation assessments, honour roll repair, war memorial cleaning and conservation work, arborist advice for war memorial trees, security measures for memorials, repairs to war memorial halls and improvements to the accessibility of memorials.

Two application rounds are run each year. The rounds open on Anzac Day and Remembrance Day.

Grant applications are assessed by the State War Memorials Committee which is comprised of senior representatives of the Returned and Services League of Australia NSW Branch (RSL NSW)  Public Works Advisory, Heritage NSW and the NSW Office for Veterans Affairs.  

The below table outlines key dates for the 2022/23 Community War Memorials Fund application rounds.
