Fund My Idea Mid North Now Open

The community is being invited to put forward ideas to gain funding of up to $50,000 in the Fund My Idea program opening this week ahead of the Country Cabinet meeting in the Mid North region at the end of the month.

The community is being invited to put forward ideas to gain funding of up to $50,000 in the Fund My Idea program opening this week ahead of the Country Cabinet meeting in the Mid North region at the end of the month.

Regional Development Minister, Geoff Brock said the highly successful Fund My Idea program was now open for project suggestions to support the communities of the Peterborough, Orroroo/Carrieton, Northern Areas and Goyder councils.

“The unique submission and voting format of this program makes it truly community-focused,” Mr Brock said.

“I encourage people to have their say in where this funding is directed, bearing in mind what will best meet the local community’s economic and social needs.

“Mid North community members can also have their say now on issues that matter to them before the public forum in Peterborough on Sunday, March 29.

“Visit yoursay.sa.gov.au to tell us what matters to you in the Mid North.”

Mr Brock said communities around the State have so far received $150,000 towards projects they suggested and voted for in their regions.

“The State Government’s decision last year to roll out the Country Cabinet program across the State represents a commitment to creating more opportunities to engage with regional South Australia.

“The Fund My Idea program – as part of the enhanced $15 million a year Regional Development Fund – is a commitment of genuine support for communities to make decisions about the things that matter to them.

“$150,000 is available each year for the next three years for regions hosting a Country Cabinet meeting with three meetings to be held each year.

“All are welcome to the free community BBQ and the public forum with the Premier and Cabinet Ministers to be held in the Peterborough Basketball Stadium from 5pm on Sunday 29 March,” Mr Brock said.
