Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith recently joined Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott to announce the first round of 2017 funding for the Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF) is now open.

The CWMF is designed to protect and repair local war memorials, which preserves the ANZAC legacy.

Stuart Ayres urged Councils to apply for the fund, which provides the opportunity for all NSW communities to access up to $10,000.

“Ensuring local war memorials remain in great condition is an essential part of honouring Australian service men and women who sacrificed so much for our nation,” Stuart Ayres said.

“The CWMF ensures communities have the opportunity to protect and conserve war memorials, which is why I believe this is such an important initiative,” he said.

“Funding applications can be made by veterans groups, community organisations and councils until Anzac Day and I sincerely encourage all communities who require funds for restoration to apply,” Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott said.

The CWMF has recently funded the painting of the Bellata War Memorial Hall, repairs to the Maclean Cenotaph, a conservation assessment report for the Broken Hill War Memorial as well as the installation of barriers around the Boer War Memorial and WWII RAAF Memorial in Lismore to protect them from damage.

Applications will be assessed by the State War Memorial Committee, which is made up of NSW RSL, Public Works Advisory, NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and Veterans’ Affairs.
