Grants program

The Queensland Anzac Centenary Grants Program helps communities commemorate the Australian centenary of the First World War and the outstanding service and sacrifice of Queensland’s men and women.

So far, we have proudly supported over 180 community projects and events with over $4 million in funding, to commemorate the role played by individual citizens or their community as a whole in Australia’s First World War effort.

It is now easier than ever to apply for a grant with changes to the program making it even more accessible for community organisations.

Acknowledging funding

Organisations and communities who benefit from the Queensland Anzac Centenary grants program need to comply with funding conditions as part of a funding agreement.

Acknowledging this support informs the community about how public funding is being spent.

Your funding agreement with the Queensland Government means you’re required to use the government Anzac Centenary locked logo along with a written acknowledgement on the materials you produce.

You’re also required to provide an opportunity for a government representative to attend your event or project, by sending an invitation via email or by post to:

Anzac Centenary Coordination Unit
Department of the Premier and Cabinet
PO Box 15185
City East Queensland 4002
