Voting is now open for the My Community Project program and Bellingen Shire has four that you can select and then rank in preferred order.
Check out these Bellingen projects under the Oxley electorate section to find out why each is a worthy cause.
Voting closes on August 15.
Bellingen Museum Storeroom Development $21,647

School goat track upgrade $28,000
To create appropriate access to Bellingen High School for all community members with a suitable pathway.
Tennis Court Lighting $88,550

To create safe fun for LGBT+ youth and their allies in the development of a youth camp & short digital film.
There is a total of $260,000 of funding available for the whole electorate of Oxley, so your vote really does count to ensure at least one of the local community projects is successful.
Voting closes on August 15 and can be accessed through the Service NSW website. You will need a MyServiceNSW account and your Medicare Card to vote for your preferred or favourite project, or you can visit the local Service NSW Centre and cast your vote there.
Voters are able to select three to five projects as part of their vote or order of preference. Projects in each electorate will be ranked in order of total points received. People can only vote once.
The project with the most points will be funded first, the project with the second most points will be funded second and so on until no more projects can be fully funded with funding for Oxley.
