What is the Armistice Centenary Grant program? 

The Armistice Centenary Grants Program provides grants of between $3,000 to $50,000 for local community-based projects and activities that commemorate the end of the First World War, remembering Australian service men and women from all conflicts.

Each federal electorate will have a funding pool of $50,000 available for commemorative projects. A Community Consultation Committee will be established in Braddon to assist Justine Keay MP in seeking the local community's views on how to commemorate the Centenary.
