Does your local organisation arrange commemorative events?
Are Anzac Day services or Remembrance Day ceremonies regulars on your organisational calendar?
Local groups can apply for Maitland City Council's Commemorative and Recognised Days Grant Program.
The grant program offers financial support to organisations or groups that facilitate ceremonies which acknowledge and commemorate the service and sacrifice of men and women who have served Australia and its allies in wars, conflicts and peace operations.
If you are part of a Returned and Services League or similar organisation you may be eligible to apply for grant funding.
Funding of up to $2000 is available to not for profits which must be matched in kind or with cash, materials or volunteer hours.
