Funds available for local war memorials in NSW

RICHMOND and Clarence Valley Councils, as well as local veteran groups, should consider applying for more funding under the NSW Government's Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) which is open until Anzac Day, according to Clarence Nationals MP.

"This is a great program to preserve our local military heritage of which we are all so proud," Mr Gulaptis said.

"Last year the Maclean RSL Sub Branch was awarded close to the grant maximum of $10,000 for the town's war memorial and I'd love to see more local communities benefit."

Funding applications can be made by veterans groups, community organisations and councils.

Applications will be assessed by the State War Memorial Committee, which is made up of NSW RSL, Public Works Advisory, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and Veterans' Affairs.

For more information, including application forms, please visit www.veterans.nsw.gov.au or contact the office of Mr Gulaptis on 66431244.
