Grass­roots com­mu­nity grants fund now open

Alpine Observer - - News -

VIC­TO­RI­ANS ev­ery­where have the chance to pitch their ideas for com­mu­nity pro­jects and to vote for them, thanks to the State Gov­ern­ment’s $30 mil­lion Pick My Project fund.

Grants of be­tween $20,000 and $200,000 will be made avail­able for any ideas that will make lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties bet­ter places to live.

Any Vic­to­rian res­i­dent aged 16 and over can sub­mit their idea for con­sid­er­a­tion, which has the back­ing of a lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tion, com­mu­nity group, school, lo­cal coun­cil, or other el­i­gi­ble group able to help de­liver the project.

To view the guide­lines, find out more about the work­shops and regis­ter your in­ter­est, visit pick­mypro­ject.vic.gov.au

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open un­til Sun­day, June 24 with the win­ning pro­jects to be an­nounced in Septem­ber.
