Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program

Australian Government Department of Veterans' Affairs

The Saluting Their Service (STS) Commemorative Grants program is designed to preserve Australia’s wartime heritage and to involve people throughout the nation in a wide range of projects and activities that highlight the service and sacrifice of Australia’s servicemen and women in wars, conflicts and peace operations, and promote appreciation and understanding of the role that those who served have played in shaping the nation.

Two categories of grants are available under the STS program:

  1. Community Grants (STS-CG) — Grants up to a maximum of $10,000 are available for community-based commemorative projects and activities. This includes, for example, the building of community memorials and the preservation of wartime memorabilia that is significant locally but is not necessarily nationally significant.

Liquor & Gaming NSW

The NSW Government offers grants to communities across NSW to support the building, renovation and fit-out of infrastructure. Funding is available for arts and cultural infrastructure, sport and recreation infrastructure and projects that assist communities with essential infrastructure and disaster readiness.

Infrastructure Grants are made possible through the NSW Government’s Clubgrants Category 3 Fund, which reinvests a contribution from the state’s registered clubs gaming machine profits back into community projects.

For 2019/20, three grant rounds are available. The rounds will open on 5 August 2019, 18 November 2019 and 16 March 2020.

For the March 2020 round, we will give priority to bushfire affected communities, to assist in the recovery efforts. This means these communities will be prioritised in funding decisions.
