Forty-six projects across Queensland have received funding in the third round of the Anzac Centenary Community Grants program.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the State Government was providing funding of $752,750 for the projects, which would engage and educate Queenslanders of all ages.

“The community support and passion shown by Queenslanders in round three made the grants assessment process extremely difficult.

“It was great to see so many applications dedicated to commemorating Queensland’s role in the First World War.

“The successful applicants include local exhibitions and community research exploring the lives of Queenslanders who epitomised the Anzac values of mateship, courage, integrity and sacrifice.

“I look forward to seeing these community projects being brought to life.

“With the approval of these 46 new projects, more than 180 local community organisations have now received $4 million in funding to create a legacy for future generations.

“This means Queenslanders will have even more opportunities to participate in the Anzac centenary and commemorate our contribution to the First World War,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
