Applications are now open for My Community Project, a funding program delivering grants for community projects.
Funding of $24.4 million will be evenly split across NSW electorates and made available for projects valued between $20,000 and $200,000 that will make communities more liveable, cultural, accessible, safe, revitalised or healthy.
Communities are able to cast a vote online for the projects they like the most. The pilot program was established by the NSW Government as part of the 2018 Budget and is made possible by the NSW Generations Fund.
Hilltops residents are being encouraged to submit applications to enable the region to decide on the best projects to enhance their area.
If you have a bright idea, now is the time to get started:
Step 1: Contact a sponsor to see if they’ll support your project - it could be your council, school or a charity.
Step 2: Complete Part One of the application form online and click ‘submit’ to send to your sponsor (remember to allow enough time for your sponsor to complete it).
Step 3: Have your sponsor complete Part Two of the application and submit the final version before 2.00pm on Wednesday 15 May 2019.
Applicants and sponsors will be notified if their project progresses to the public vote.
