Funds available for regional Anzac Day events

REGIONAL communities across Queensland can apply for funding for local events, projects and re-enactments to commemorate next year's Anzac Day centenary.

Minister Assisting the Premier on the Anzac Centenary Glen Elmes said  the grants would provide an opportunity for communities to commemorate the role played by individual citizens or their community as a whole in Australia's First World War effort.

"The grants will provide funding of up to $80,000 for local projects to commemorate the centenary of World War One," he said.

"The centenary is an important opportunity to remember those courageous men and women who have fought and served in all wars, conflicts and peace operations and especially remember the sacrifice of those who have given their lives in service.

"The grants will help communities' stage events and commemorations with particular local relevance such as exhibitions, community education activities and the restoration or enhancement of memorials and honour boards."
