Armistice Day Centenary Grants

September 13, 2017

It’s been 100 years since the end of the First World War and Fowler MP, Chris Hayes, has one-off grants of between $3,000 and $50,000 for commemorative projects or activities celebrating this milestone.

The Armistice Centenary Grants Program will open in November this year.

A Community Consultation Committee is being formed and together with Chris, will seek the community’s views on how best to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice locally.

"This was a significant period in our nation’s history and I would encourage anyone who would like to become involved to do so and submit an expression of interest to my office before the applications open", Chris Hayes said.

Applications open on 11 November 2017 and close on 28 February 2018. More information is available at or by calling 1800 555 254.
