Capricornia Preserves Australia’s Military History

Community groups and organisations in Capricornia committed to preserving Australia’s military history will benefit from $10,000 under the Federal Government’s Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program.

Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry congratulated Yeppoon RSL on being awarded a grant and ensuring those on the Capricorn Coast have an awareness of the strong connection to our nation’s military history.

“The successful applicants set to receive funding under the Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program will make an important contribution in honouring Australian service personnel and wartime heritage for current and future generations,” Ms Landry said.

“Yeppoon RSL will receive $10,000 to support the refurbishment of their military museum.

“This project is a part of 80 projects funded nationwide, sharing in more than $1 million to preserve Australia’s military history.

“Congratulations to Yeppoon RSL and I encourage organisations in Central Queensland committed to preserving our military history to consider applying for future funding rounds.”

The Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program is designed to preserve Australia’s wartime heritage and involve people around the nation in a wide range of projects and activities that honour the service and sacrifice of Australia’s service personnel.

Community groups and organisations are encouraged to apply for funding in the next round of Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program, particularly for projects and activities that commemorate the Vietnam War, with several significant anniversaries from this conflict falling in 2021. Applications for Batch 3 of the 2020-21 Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program close on 11 February 2021. Visit the Community Grants Hub for more information.
