Vote for most worthy community project to win

FROM Barwon to Bankstown and Wagga to Wollongong, people have put up fantastic ideas to be considered from the groundbreaking My Community Project grants program.

More than 1,800 community groups and individuals across NSW, have completed applications for the $24.4 million program which allows people to nominate a community project and then vote on which ones are funded.

Treasurer Dominic Perrottet thanks everyone who took the time to apply and seek out a sponsor and is now looking forward to the voting stage.

“We asked people to think about their community needs, develop that idea with a local sponsor organisation such as a school or charity and then tell us how funding can help turn their concept into reality,” he said.

“This really is grassroots democracy in action, a program driven by the community with the aim of delivering for that community.”

Grants of between $20,000 and $200,000 will be awarded once voting is complete. Voting will begin in mid-July and winners announced in September.
