WENDY TUCKERMAN: Electorate chooses My Community Projects

Official Media Release from the Office of Wendy Tuckerman
Thursday, 5 September 2019

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman today announced the winners of the My Community Project with applicants now able to bring their ideas to life.

The electorate will benefit from two projects put forward and voted on by the local community, to be funded by the NSW Government’s My Community Project program.

The successful projects are:

  • Moss Vale High School Community Café ($68,690) – The Café will create a professional environment where students can use their skills to cater for events.
  •  Moss Vale Golf Club ($162,730) – Upgrade the car park access and lighting for safer day and night time use at Moss Vale’s major community venue. 

Mrs Tuckerman thanked all applicants and sponsors for taking the time and effort to develop their ideas and promote their projects along with the members of the community who voted.

“My Community Project captured the imagination of the community with people putting a lot of work into their ideas and it was great to see people get behind the projects that matter to them,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“These projects came from the community and were voted on by the community and I now look forward to seeing applicants and sponsors getting on with the job of rolling out these projects and the benefits they will provide to the local community.”

More than $24 million was made available, spread across the entire State, for projects valued between $20,000 and $200,000 that would make communities more liveable, cultural, accessible, safe, revitalised or healthy.

Acting Treasurer Damien Tudehope said My Community Project was a great example of real grassroots democracy in action and the projects chosen to receive funding reflected the wishes of the people.

“There has been a tremendous response to the My Community Project program with more than 61,400 people casting their vote through the My Community Project website across the State,” Mr Tudehope said.

“I congratulate the successful project applicants and urge those projects that were unsuccessful to see if they could be eligible to apply for other NSW Government funding from programs such as Community Building Partnerships, which is now open.

“My Community Project was made possible by the NSW Generations Fund, a sovereign wealth fund that helps maintain debt at sustainable levels, while sharing the benefits of its returns with local communities.”
