DVA Media Release – More than $1.68 million to salute veterans’ service

Councils, schools, community and ex-service organisations across the country will share in more than $1.68 million in funding, thanks to the Albanese Government’s Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program.

Local monuments and commemorative activities are a vital part of making sure the stories of service and sacrifice of local legends live on for generations.

Today I’m pleased to announce 91 unique projects have been successful in receiving funding through this round of the Saluting their Service Grant program, each will deliver places of reflection as well as make learning our military history more accessible.

The successful submissions feature a range of innovative commemorative activities, including an installation at Western Riverina Arts to commemorate Indigenous veterans and the development of a digital exhibition and documentary marking next year’s 80th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

The ongoing Saluting their Service Commemorative Grants Program delivers Community Grants up to $10,000 and Major Grants up to $150,000 with the current round open until 20 June 2024.

With the 25th anniversary of INTERFET coming up in September and the 80th anniversary of the end of the Second World War next year, now is the perfect time to develop innovative projects that pay tribute to all those who have, and continue to serve our nation.
