This program aims to involve people throughout the nation in a wide range of projects and activities that highlight the service and sacrifice of Australia's service personnel in wars, conflicts and peace operations, and to promote appreciation and understanding of the role that those who have served have played in shaping the nation.
Funding will be provided for state/territory or nationally significant commemorative activities which commemorate the involvement, service and sacrifice of Australia's service personnel wars, conflicts and peace operations.
Two categories of grants are available under the STS program:
- Community Commemorative Grants (CCG) — Grants up to a maximum of $4,000 are available for community-based commemorative projects and activities. This includes, for example, the building of community memorials and the preservation of wartime memorabilia that is significant locally but is not necessarily nationally significant.
- Major Commemorative Grants (MCG) — Grants are available for projects and activities that are significant, from a national, state or territory perspective and that contribute to Australia’s understanding of its wartime heritage and honour the service and sacrifice of its servicemen and women.
