State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP, announced the winners of the My Community Project, with applicants now able to bring their ideas to life. Our region will benefit from projects put forward and voted on by the local community, which will now be funded by the NSW Government’s My Community Project program.
The successful projects are:
Ms Gibbons thanked all applicants and sponsors for taking the time and effort to develop their ideas along with the members of the community who voted.
“My Community Project captured the imagination of our local community with people putting a lot of work into their ideas and it was great to see locals getting behind the projects that matter to them,” Ms Gibbons said.
“These projects came from the community and were voted on by the community and I look forward to seeing them becoming a reality and providing a local benefit.”
More than $24 million was made available, spread across the entire State, for projects valued between $20,000 and $200,000 that would make communities more liveable, cultural, accessible, safe, revitalised or healthy.
Acting Treasurer Damien Tudehope said My Community Project was a great example of real grassroots democracy in action and the projects chosen to receive funding reflected the wishes of the people.
“There has been a tremendous response to the My Community Project program with more than 61,400 people casting their vote through the My Community Project website across the State,” Mr Tudehope said.
