Funding is intended to honor the State's veterans and soldiers and commemorate their service to the nation. Funded projects may create new memorials or improve, repair, reconstruct, or rehabilitate existing memorials.

  • The capability of the applicant to carry out the proposed project.
  • The effectiveness of the proposed project to recognize veterans and/or wars.

Eligible Projects: The types of eligible projects include construction of a new memorial or restoration of an existing memorial. A memorial is a monument or place designated to commemorate or preserve the memory of wars involving the United States of America or to honor veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
