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.
