Anzac Centenary Grants and Initiatives

Text Size a a a Print Print this page

Lotterywest is offering grants during the Anzac Centenary period, to help Western Australian communities commemorate, share and record their stories and experiences on how war has shaped our society and way of life.

Grant applications are being considered for a variety of initiatives relating to the Anzac Centenary including:


A project might explore opportunities, address community issues or raise awareness about an issue. It might be directly related to commemoration of the ANZAC legend or explore another aspect of our social history, like the impact of war on migration patterns in Western Australia.

Community events

These grants can help communities acknowledge the Anzac Centenary through commemorative events, community gatherings and other occasions.

Big ideas

Lotterywest encourages large scale ideas that have great public reach, benefit future generations or provide for significant change. These grants support State assets such as the Federation Walkway in Kings Park or significant celebrations. They should relate to the aims of Lotterywest’s Anzac Centenary grants programs and must be achieved during the Centenary period.

Community histories

Community stories shape us and help us understand our identity. These grants provide for the recording and sharing of past experiences of a place, organisation or event that will explore how war and conflict have shaped our society and way of life during the Centenary period.

In addition to Lotterywest’s usual eligibility criteria, grant applications will be assessed on whether:

  • the project will benefit Western Australian communities;
  • there is evidence of historical integrity and significance;
  • there is evidence of broader community interest in the project;
  • the project will be completed within the Anzac Centenary commemoration period (2014–2018); and 
  • there is evidence of consultation with relevant stakeholders and community support.
