Voting now open for Victoria’s community grants program Pick My Project


There’s $30 million in funding available for project ideas through the Victorian Government’s community grants program Pick My Project, and communities are encouraged to have their say with voting now open.

Victorians aged 16 and over can vote for their favourite project ideas in their local community. Voting is open until 5pm, Monday 17 September.

Project ideas range from community gardens, sporting facility upgrades, technology hubs and arts festivals.

Voters can visit the Pick My Project website ( to register and vote for their three favourite project ideas in their local community. Voters can only pick one local community and this can be the community they live or work in, or have a strong connection to.

Project ideas with the most votes in each of the Victorian Government’s metropolitan and regional partnership areas will be invited to enter into an agreement for their project, with between $20,000 and $200,000 available for each project idea.

In order to support Victorians with the online process, the Pick My Project team will provide face-to-face ‘help desks’ across Victoria to demonstrate the voting process, equip library and neighbourhood house staff across the state to support community members with voting, provide a step-by-step instructional video, and provide phone, email and social media support through a dedicated contact centre—particularly supporting voting for Victorians without access to a mobile phone.

Dear Reader,

The Indian Sun is an independent organisation committed to community journalism. We have, through the years, been able to reach a wide audience especially with the growth of social media, where we also have a strong presence. With platforms such as YouTube videos, we have been able to engage in different forms of storytelling. However, the past few years, like many media organisations around the world, it has not been an easy path. We have a greater challenge. We believe community journalism is very important for a multicultural country like Australia. We’re not able to do everything, but we aim for some of the most interesting stories and journalism of quality. We call upon readers like you to support us and make any contribution. Do make a DONATION NOW so we can continue with the volume and quality journalism that we are able to practice.

Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,
Team The Indian Sun
