Frequently asked questions
Q. Why do I need a MyServiceNSW Account to vote?
Q. Why do I need to provide my home address in the voting form?
A. As you can only vote for projects in your electorate, your home address will be used to let you see the list of projects that have been submitted for your area.
Q. Can I vote for a project outside my electorate?
A. No. My Community Project is all about letting local communities decide on the projects that will benefit them. All eligible voters have a chance to vote for projects in the community they live in and funding is divided evenly across all electorates.
Q. Will some electorates receive more funding than others?
A. No. Every electorate has been allocated the same amount of funding.
Q. I think my project was popular but it didn’t get funded - how can I check?
A. The results of the vote will be published on the My Community Project website in September 2019. This will include the number of points each project received as a result of the vote.
Q. What happens with the successful projects after the vote?
A. The sponsor organisations will be responsible for delivering the projects. The NSW Government will enter into funding agreements with the sponsors and the projects will be monitored to make sure they stay on track.
Q. If my project is successful, will I (the applicant) be responsible for the project funding?
A. No. The project sponsor will receive the funding and be responsible for delivering the project according to the agreed delivery milestones.
Q. Is there a time limit for the projects to be delivered?
A. Projects must be completed within 12 months from the date the funding agreement is signed.
