Amongst the diverse range of projects to receive funding are:
- the re-enactment of recruitment marches in a number NSW and Queensland electorates
- the projection of the names of the 849 First World War Fremantle soldiers on the Fremantle Town Hall during the Fremantle Festival
- the broadcasting of the 2015 Anzac Day dawn service from Cronulla Park, NSW
- the restoration of a First World War Mark VI Field Ambulance and General Service Wagon which will be used in First World War Centenary Parade and placed on permanent public display at Old Gippstown, Gippsland Heritage Park, Victoria
- various First World War exhibitions and displays across Australia.
More than 1,700 Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program applications were received and grant agreements have been executed for the majority of projects funded.
