Moree community members are encouraged to show their support and vote for a number of local projects which have been submitted for funding under the My Community Project grants program.
The My Community Project grants program will fund projects in each NSW electorate to help improve the wellbeing of the people and communities that live there.
Moree Plains Shire Council and a number of other Moree community groups have made submissions to the program, and success is dependent on a community vote.
"The NSW Government's My Community Project grants program was released for the first time in 2019," council's acting manager of economic development and grants Susannah Pearse said.
"The Moree Plains Shire has been fortunate that a number of community groups have actively collaborated with council to make submissions under the fund. The final list of eligible projects will be released when voting opens on July 15.
"The projects for our shire are competing against all submissions for the Northern Tablelands electorate so it's really important that the community gets on board to vote for their preferred projects."
The projects submitted by council include:
- Boggabilla Sports Ground amenities valued at $186,264
- Boomi Community Projects valued at $58,515
- Moree Memorial Hall retractable seating valued at $199,714
- Mungindi Tennis Court revitalisation valued at $99,872
- Pallamallawa "Nanna Brazel" Park inclusive upgrades including children's bike track and static exercise equipment valued at $48,000
- Weemelah Public Toilets inclusive upgrades valued at $50,715.
The NSW Government will announce the complete list of projects from the Moree Plains Shire on Monday, 15 July.
Community members wanting to support and vote for their favourite projects within the Northern Tablelands electorate need to ensure they have registered for a My Service NSW account.
