How it works

Fund My Idea is run in conjunction with the Country Cabinet program. Read more about Country Cabinet.

Local communities nominate projects (ideas) that will deliver an economic or social benefit. The community then votes for their favourite idea. The idea that gets the most votes is funded. 

To be eligible for funding, projects must be nominated, benefit and be delivered in the Port Augusta and Northern Flinders Ranges region and meet the eligibility criteria.
