Grants programs

The Queensland Government’s grants programs help Queensland communities to commemorate the role played by Queenslanders throughout Australia’s military history and provide support to our veterans.

Queensland Veterans’ Memorial Grants Program

Announced in 2018, the Queensland Veterans’ Memorial Grants Program was implemented to provide support for the creation, upkeep and renovation of monuments, memorials and other public sites relevant to Queensland veterans. Over $530,000 in funding was allocated to community projects across the State to create, restore and enhance monuments and memorials that honour the service and sacrifice of Queenslanders in war, peacekeeping and peacemaking, providing communities with a place to commemorate their service.

The successful applicants of the final round were announced in September 2020. This grants program has now concluded.
