My Community Project is all about local ideas, local projects and local decisions
For the first time, you will be able to put forward ideas for community projects and vote for the best ideas in your area. The projects that get the most votes will receive funding – up to $260,000 is available for your community.
Projects must align with one or more of the six program categories:
Accessible communities – makes everyday life more inclusive to all community members by increasing accessibility and mobility
Cultural communities – adds to the cultural and artistic life of the community by increasing opportunities for residents to participate in arts and cultural activities
Healthy communities – supports the community’s physical and mental wellbeing, by enabling healthy and active lifestyles
Liveable communities – improves local amenity and environment
Revitalising communities – fosters stronger community bonds, encourages social engagement and participation in public programs
Safe communities – promotes a safe and secure community where people can participate and enjoy the benefits of community life.
