Frequently asked questions

Please be aware that applications for the Queensland Anzac Centenary grants program have now closed.

Those seeking funding for Anzac Centenary projects can explore opportunities through alternative local, state and national grant programs.

The grants program

  • What are the main differences between the Lasting Legacies and Spirit of Service programs?

    The Spirit of Service grants program opened multiple times throughout the year and offered funding up to $20,000.

    The Lasting Legacies grants program opened once per year and offered funding from $20,001 to $80,000.

Eligible organisations or individuals

  • What is classified as an eligible organisation?

    All eligible organisations must be operating on a not-for-profit basis with a valid Australian Business Number (ABN).

  • Do I need an ABN (Australian Business Number)?

    Yes. Your organisation must have a valid ABN to apply. If your organisation does not currently have a valid ABN, be sure to leave enough time to obtain one. Applications cannot be submitted without a valid ABN and late applications will not be considered.

  • Do I need to be registered for GST?

    No. You do not need to be registered for GST.

    If you are GST registered, 10% GST will be added to your grant amount and itemised as GST.

    If you are not GST, you will have the opportunity to apply for reimbursement of the GST incurred, in the final payment.

    For advice on GST, please contact your tax advisor or the Australian Taxation Office on 13 28 69 or via its website on

Eligible projects, assessment and notifications

  • What types of projects are eligible?

    The Spirit of Service guidelines (PDF, 865KB) and Lasting Legacies guidelines (PDF, 925KB) contain a list of eligible and ineligible projects and costs. Before submitting an application, please carefully consider the eligible costs and program guidelines, to ensure your project aligns with this grants program.

  • How will my application be assessed?

    Eligible applications will be assessed by judges against other applications and how the project aligns with the Anzac Centenary grants program objectives and assessment criteria. Please refer to the guidelines for assessment criteria details.

  • When will I know if I am successful?

    Announcement of successful Lasting Legacies round six and Spirit of Service round five applications is expected in May 2018.

  • If my project isn't successful, can I apply in another round?

    Unfortunately there will be no further rounds under the Queensland Anzac Centenary grants program. Other grant funding is also available through various local, state and national grant programs.

  • What would be required of my organisation if I receive a grant?

    You will be required to:

    • enter into letter of agreement with the Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC)
    • if applicable, provide copies of documentation (i.e. additional permits, approvals etc.) to DPC on request and in accordance with the letter of agreement
    • acknowledge the Queensland Government's contribution, by, but not limited to:
      • incorporating and displaying any logos, signage and merchandise provided by DPC
      • providing opportunities or similar for the Premier, Minister or delegate in connection with your project (e.g. public address, role at an opening ceremony, book foreword)
    • provide all advertising material to DPC for approval prior to production
    • work with DPC on any matter related to the advertising and promotion of your project
    • if applicable, ensure DPC is granted an appropriate licence to use, reproduce and communicate to the public any works produced in the course of or as a result of your project
    • provide DPC with images of your project accompanied by signed photo consent forms and a perpetual, royalty-free, non-exclusive licence to the images
    • deliver on milestones as detailed in the letter of agreement, including submission of status reports (a template will be provided)
    • deliver the project as per the letter of agreement
    • provide a final report and financial acquittal within four weeks of the project's completion (a template will be provided).

Funding conditions

  • When will funding be available?

    Funding will be provided to successful applicants once they have entered into a letter of agreement with DPC.

  • What if I don't spend all of the money?

    Under the letter of agreement, you will be legally obligated to return all unspent funds to DPC. If funds are spent on purposes not approved or ineligible costs, these must also be returned by the acquittal date, generally four weeks after the project's date of completion.

  • Is there a penalty if reports or acquittals are not returned on time?

    Grantees are required to acquit the grant by the due date listed in the letter of agreement, generally four weeks after the project's date of completion. The full details of the acquittal requirements, including consequences of non-compliance, are set out in the letter of agreement.
