My Community Project
My Community Project is made possible by the NSW Generations Fund. The fund helps keep the state’s debt at a sustainable level, while sharing the benefit of its returns with the people of NSW by funding community projects. For the first time, individuals will be able to put forward their ideas for community projects and vote for the best ideas in their area.
The projects that get the most votes will receive funding to deliver their project in their community. In 2019, $24.4 million is available to support projects across NSW.
Now is the time to start thinking about projects to benefit the community where you live. New playground equipment or sports facilities for the kids, paths or ramps to improve access, a community garden to rejuvenate an empty space – these are all things that can revitalise communities.
People and groups can participate by submitting ideas, sponsoring projects and voting for projects.
Projects must benefit the local community and request funding between $20,000 and $200,000.
Applications open: 2 April 2019.
Applications close: 15 May 2019.
From 15 July 2019, people across NSW will vote for the projects they want funded in their community.
