My Community Project

Applications are now open.

My Community Project is all about local ideas, local projects and local decisions

Have you got a great idea to improve your local community? It might be new playground equipment or sports facilities for the kids, paths or ramps to improve access, an art installation to rejuvenate an empty space or a community transport service. Grants between $20,000 and $200,000 are available.

Your idea could receive funding through My Community Project and now is the time to apply. Do not forget to confirm support from a local organisation as the project sponsor (PDF, 2.9MB). The project sponsor will deliver the project if it is funded, and could be your local council, community group, sports club, charity or school.

Both you and the project sponsor will need to submit the application before 2pm on 15 May 2019. We recommend that you complete your section by 1 May 2019. This will allow enough time for the project sponsor to complete your application. 

Once the NSW Government has assessed project eligibility and viability, voting will open on 15 July 2019.

For more information about the program and tips on how to complete your application, download the Applicant Fact Sheet (PDF, 1.62MB).
