There’s still time for people in the Tatiara, Southern Mallee, and Karoonda East Murray council areas to get their ideas in to be considered for funding through Fund My Idea.

The extended deadline will allow time for more ideas to come through for consideration for the public voting part of the program.

Fund My Idea is all about giving local people a say in where they would like to see funding in their area spent, and what will have a positive impact on the community.
