Grant applications are considered on an annual basis and multi-year applications for up to 3 years are considered.


  • Grant applications open: 25 April (Anzac Day)
  • Grant applications close: 30 June
  • Shortlisting and interviews by the ADT Trustees: July - October

To apply, complete and return the application form to

The purpose of the form is to allow you to make the best case for your application and allow the Trustees of the Anzac Day Trust to make informed recommendations to the Minister for Veterans Issues. As with all public funds, applications need to be accompanied by an appropriate level of detail and justification.

The Trustees will consider all projects that deliver tangible outcomes and value for money for veterans and their families. 

Where two organisations would like to provide a similar service, the Trustees will favour initiatives that are delivered in collaboration. The aim is to prevent duplication of services and helps to create a connected service delivery environment.

Please contact the Manager of Veterans’ Issues at if you have any queries or concerns regarding your application.
