FUNDING TO HELP COMMEMORATE THE SERVICE OF VETERANS IN BENDIGO

The Andrews Labor Government has provided a funding boost to help Bendigo commemorate the sacrifice of local veterans, and educate the wider community about their service. 

State Members for Bendigo, Maree Edwards and Jacinta Allan today said that the Soldiers Memorial Institute Military Museum will receive $80,000 under the Victoria Remembers Grant Program and the Golden Dragon Museum will receive $17,592 under the Anzac Centenary Community Grants Program.

•The Victoria Remembers Grant Program supports projects that help communities make a personal connection to the Anzac Centenary or other wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Projects have significant commemorative or educational benefit for Victoria’s diverse community.

A total of $328,370 has been allocated to eight projects through this Program. 

•The Anzac Centenary Community Grants Program commemorates World War I veterans and informs their communities about the experiences of WWI veterans. Projects can include new memorials, one-off community events, community education projects and the preservation of local WWI history. The Victorian Veterans Council assists with the delivery of this program.

A total of $120,880 has been allocated to fifteen projects through this Program.

This builds on the Labor Government’s work to preserve and educate Victorians about the service of our veterans through the $5 million commitment to the Anzac Centenary and $1 million to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan.
