Weddin Shire Council

NSW Government My Community Project Program

As previously advised the Hon Steph Cooke MP has advised that residents can choose what community projects they would like funded thanks to the NSW Government’s My Community Project program, and residents are encouraged to have their say.

Forty-three (43) projects have reached the public vote stage, allowing everybody a chance to help decide which ideas come to life. This is an innovative and exciting program that is putting decision making back in the hands of community members to weigh in on their top picks for projects in the region. Voting is open and residents have until August 15, 2019 to nominate between three and five projects, which is easy to do.

You will need your Medicare card and a free MyServiceNSW account or you can also pop down to the local Service NSW centre where our friendly staff can help residents cast their vote.

Successful projects will be announced from September 2019. $24.4 million is available for eligible projects, with up to $260,000 available for the Cootamundra electorate.
