Pick Your Project: Regional Victorians setting the agenda19/04/2018
The Victorian Government has announced the new $30 million Pick My Project initiative, which will give people living in our region a further opportunity to see their projects realised.
The new grassroots democracy program, a Victorian first, is open to all residents aged 16 and over, who are invited to submit an idea for consideration under the program.
Ideas can include anything from sporting and recreation infrastructure, community arts projects, improvements to community facilities or the local environment.
Projects between $20,000 and $200,000 are eligible under the program.
The Minister for Regional Development explained, “Our Regional Partnerships have shown us that locals know best, and that is exactly what this fund is about – putting community funding decisions back in the hands of communities.”
The initiative complements the activities of the Regional Partnership and is another way that Regional Partnerships and the Government are giving a real voice to our local community.
Pick My Project will start in May and winning projects will be announced in September 2018.
