$500 My Place is Ace grant

Do you have a great idea that with a little bit of help could create a great place?  We want to see your amazing community ideas come to life!

The $500 My Place is Ace grant has been created to give community members an opportunity to come up with a place making idea and develop the idea into reality. All you have to do is come up with a cool idea to make your community a better place for all, and tell us about it. Each month we will be giving away $500 to kick start a great idea.

Applications are always open and you can apply by filling in the $500 My Place is Ace application form below and submitting your completed form to Council for review. An idea will be selected each month to receive a one-off funding of $500 (up to 12 projects a year).

Have you got more then one idea? Then submit an application per idea. You do not need to submit the same idea more than once as Council will record all ideas received.

Before you apply please read the attached frequently asked questions and guidelines, as this provides more detail on the terms and conditions of the funding grant.

The $500 My Place is Ace grant is a mechanism to help individuals and community groups to quickly implement ideas and trial and test activation ideas, monitor conditions, and use the results to look at longer term outcomes.

Got an even bigger idea?  Need some help to make it happen? Contact the Place Making team at Council on (02) 6581 8111.

Shaping our Place is a place making initiative of the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.
