Armistice Centenary Grants

Australia’s involvement in the First World War began when Britain declared war on Germany on 4 August 1914.

On 11 November 1918, an armistice agreement signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, brought the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front at eleven o’clock in the morning—the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.

To commemorate this historic milestone, the Federal Government has made available up to $50,000 to the Goldstein electorate to fund up to twelve projects under the Armistice Centenary Grants program.

Expressions of Interest are now open for projects which either:

  • Commemorate the Centenary of Armistice Day; or
  • Preserve, interpret or display wartime and military memorabilia and artefacts.

All projects must meet the Program Guidelines which can be found here.

Expressions of Interest closed at 5.00pm on Friday 15th December 2017.
