Do you have a great idea that could make a real difference to your community? The Government is providing up to $50,000 for community-based projects across South Australia.
Fund My Idea is a grant program with a difference. Incorporating elements of place-based and participatory budgeting approaches, it provides a simple mechanism through which local communities nominate project ideas to benefit the region. Local people are then involved in deciding which projects are funded.
Through the seven Fund My Idea programs to date, 345 ideas have been nominated, 22,143 votes have been cast and 15 community-driven projects have received a share of almost $350,000.
