220 bids have been received requesting funding for Veterans Day 2007 events. Bids were assessed against well-publicised criteria setting out the objectives and key messages that events would need to support; where bids were initially non-compliant, efforts were generally made to explain how they might be modified to meet the criteria. Funding was allocated accordingly. The successful and unsuccessful applicants, together with the grants allocated to the former, are listed as follows:
