Grants program

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.

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 (PDF, 4.88MB).
