The City of Melville’s participatory funding grant, Project Robin Hood is back with $100,000 on offer for ideas by the community, for the community.

The City of Melville’s Project Robin Hood is back with $100,000 on offer (distributed via a number of small grants between $1,000 - $20,000) for projects presented by community groups, not-for-profit organisations, businesses and individuals. This is a unique opportunity for communities to connect and build stronger neighbourhoods in the City of Melville. Project Robin Hood also encourages community participation and supports the creativity of people-owned and driven projects.

Unlike traditional funding programs, the grant approval process is conducted by the community through an online voting process using a 'budget allocator'.   

Communities are encouraged to get together with their neighbours, local organisations or businesses and to start thinking about how they can grab a share of the loot.  With Project Robin Hood, no idea is a bad idea.

Key dates for Project Robin Hood are:


February 1 2017 - Submissions Open

March 17 2017 - Submissions Close

April 10 2017 - Voting Opens

May 15 2017 - Voting Closes
