Armistice Centenary Grants Program

The Turnbull Government has provided $50,000 per electorate in grant funding for local community commemorations in Mitchell to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Grant funding from $3,000 up to $50,000 in total is available. Organisations in our community are invited to express an interest in grants to support local, community based projects and activities to mark this important milestone in Australia’s history. The Armistice Centenary Grants program is now open and closes on 28 February 2018. Expressions of interest should be lodged as soon as possible.

Nominate for the Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Award

The inaugural Prime Minister’s Veteran Employment awards next year will honour Australian businesses that are employing veterans and their spouses, as well as veterans who are making a significant contribution to their workplace.

The men and women who defend our nation and freedoms in the Australian Defence Force (ADF) learn valuable skills that are in demand in the modern workplace.

They are diligent, tech savvy, highly-trained professionals. Raising awareness about the unique skills and talents former ADF personnel can bring to a workplace is another way to honour the service and sacrifice of the people who defend our nation and values.

If you know a local business that employs veterans or a former ADF member who is doing outstanding work then please encourage them to nominate for an award.

To nominate an employer or a veteran employee for an award, visit www.veteransemployment.gov.au/awards. Nominations for the awards are now open and close at midnight on Friday 22 December 2017.
