About Pick My Project:

Pick My Project is an Engage Victoria initiative. Engage Victoria is the Victorian Government’s community consultation platform and provides an opportunity for Victorian residents to be involved in making their community an even better place to live.

Pick My Project is a participatory budgeting platform provided by the State of Victoria through the Department of Premier and Cabinet and supported by Katalyst Interactive.
This new $30m community grants program is the first of its kind in Victoria and gives Victorians aged 16 and over the chance to apply for funding for any project ideas they have that will make their community an even better place to live.

Victorians will need to submit project ideas together with an eligible partner organisation, such as a community group, school, local council or a government department. Ideas will then be reviewed against the guidelines, with eligible projects being voted on by the community.

Pick My Project is a great opportunity for our organisation to work together with the community and support grassroots projects.
