War Memorial funding now available before Anzac Day
ANZAC Day is not far away and Richmond Valley Council, as well as local veteran groups are being urger to apply for funding under the NSW Government's Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF).
The fund is open until Anzac Day, according to Clarence Nationals MP, Chris Gulaptis.
"This is a great program to preserve our local military heritage of which we are all so proud," he 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.
