Regional Victorians across the state now have the opportunity to pick local projects and ideas that will transform their local community.
Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford today announced the projects that will be seeking support in a Victorian first that will make our communities better places to live.
Residents aged 16 and over can now vote for their favourite project ideas in their local community.
Voters can visit pickmyproject.vic.gov.au, register and select their local community by searching for their street address or suburb, or by dropping a pin on the map.
The Andrews Labor Government provided $30 million for Pick My Project in the Victorian Budget 2018/19, which has been divided between the six metropolitan and nine regional partnership areas.
Project ideas with the most votes in each area will be invited to enter into a funding agreement for their project, with between $20,000 and $200,000 available for each project idea.
Voting is open until 5pm, Monday 17 September 2018. For more information, visit pickmyproject.vic.gov.au.
