Back in June, I asked if you had an idea for a Pick My Project community grant. An idea that would make our Narre Warren South community a better place.
Well these groups in the electorate did and enough people voted for their ideas and have collectively received over $700,000 of the $30m dollars from the Victorian Labor Government.
Brentwood Park Neighbourhood House Inc. $200,000
Community Cinema Under the Stars. $200,000
Hampton Park Progress Association. $72,772
Buddhist Vihara Association. $196,196
Sri Lankan Dance Academy of Victoria. $38,850
In all, some 285,000 votes were cast on-line for projects around Victoria. By any measure this is high engagement in an inaugural community funding program. The Pick My Project grants are a way for communities to decide how they want to spend public money that can best suit their needs.
