The Queensland Anzac Centenary grants program helps Queensland communities commemorate the role played by Queenslanders in the First World War or significant military anniversaries.
So far, we have proudly supported over 180 community projects and events with over $4 million in funding, to commemorate the outstanding service and sacrifice of individuals or their community as a whole in Australia's military history.
Recent changes to the grants program means it's easier than ever for community organisations to apply for a grant.
Spirit of Service—round two now open
Spirit of Service grants will be accessible all year round with multiple announcement dates. Round two is now open and will close 5pm, Friday 3 February 2017. Grants are available up to $20,000 for smaller Anzac Centenary projects and events.
Lasting Legacies—now closed
The Lasting Legacies grants program is open annually with grants from $20,000 to $80,000 available. This program has closed for 2016.
If you applied for this program in 2016, successful applicants will be announced in February 2017.

Caring for memorials and honour boards
Across the state, more than 1,300 war memorials commemorate Queensland’s involvement in conflicts dating from the Boer War to the present day. If you’re tasked to care for a memorial, or perhaps seeking funding to restore a memorial during the Anzac Centenary period, please take a moment to read through The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection’s guideline Caring for war memorials.
