Victorian Veterans Council - Anzac Centenary Community Grants Program

The Victorian Veterans Council has established a community grants program to commemorate the Anzac Centenary.

The Anzac Centenary Community Grants Program offers funding to eligible organisations for projects that:

  • commemorate the service and sacrifice of World War I veterans and their communities: or
  • inform and educate Victorians about the experiences of World War I veterans and their communities.

The program supports local projects in Victoria and is separate from and will complement other Anzac Centenary grant programs delivered by the Victorian Government and/or the Commonwealth Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program.


Victorian ex-service organisations, local government authorities, not-for-profit organisations and educational institutions.
