Saluting their service: applications open for 2021 grants

A new year means opening the 2021-22 Saluting Their Service commemorative grants program, with applications now welcome from local organisations.

The federal member for Hume Angus Taylor said the program was now entering its 25th year and has already supported several community projects over the years.

“It gives me great pleasure to let the community know that applications for the Saluting Their Service commemorative grants program are now open,” Mr Taylor said.

“I’ve seen first-hand the fantastic work that results from this grant funding.

“This region has a rich military history, and each year the community does what it can to ensure we remember those who served and their efforts in defending our nation and its allies.

“Commemoration is at the heart of our community, something we see on display each Anzac Day and Remembrance Day, and I encourage organisations to apply for funding through the Saluting Their Service commemorative grants program.

“2020 had an unexpected impact on our community due to the coronavirus, so as we enter into the 2021–22 grant funding year, let’s make sure that we use the support provided by the Saluting Their Service commemorative grants program to carry on the commemorations legacy.”

The grant opportunity guidelines have been revised for 2021–22, including more information around coronavirus support and new opening and closing dates.
