Melville: $100,000 worth of community grants unveiled for Project Robin Hood

NEARLY 2500 people cast their vote to determine how $100,000 worth of community grants would be distributed – and the successful applicants have now been unveiled.

Project Robin Hood is run by the City of Melville and hands the decision-making process back to residents.

The Project had 22 applicants for voters to consider.

City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said this initiative helped build better neighbourhoods, more connected communities, provided some innovative programs and brings people together to create beautiful spaces for everyone to enjoy.

“Project Robin Hood was never about winning or losing. It is about the community getting together, trying something new, meeting new people and working together to improve our City’s amenities,” he said.

Each funded projects will be appointed a City officer to provide technical advice, guidance and support.
