Communities across Victoria have responded overwhelmingly to Pick My Project, putting forward more than 2000 project ideas to the Andrews Labor Government’s community grants initiative.
Victorians will soon be able to have their say, with voting for projects across the state to open on Monday 13 August 2018.
Victorians can help make their favourite project ideas a reality by voting for the top three eligible projects in their local community.
Project ideas with the most votes will share in the $30 million funding, with between $20,000 and $200,000 available for each project idea.
The $30 million in funding has been divided between the six metropolitan and nine regional partnership areas, with each to receive at least $1 million for project ideas in their area.
Details about the voting process will be available ahead of voting on Monday.
