Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman urged people in the Goulburn electorate to get their applications in to enable each community to decide on the best projects to enhance their area.

"My Community Project gives you the chance to develop your great idea to revitalise or renew your community, whether that be through a community garden, a cultural fair, or a safe and inclusive playground," Mrs Tuckerman said.

"Through this program, locals can think about what their area needs and develop that idea with a project sponsor.

"Once we have the eligible project applications for each area, we will invite the community to get behind them by casting a vote online for the projects they like the most."

Funding of $24.4 million will be evenly split across NSW electorates and made available for projects valued between $20,000 and $200,000. For more information visit www.nsw.gov.au/mycommunityproject or phone: 13 77 88.
