Hi all,

Recently I discovered that the Victorian Government have a local project funding source up and running. Pick My Project (PickMyProject.Vic.Gov.Au) offers a possible funding source for digitisation of local newspapers on Trove. You can apply for projects between $20,000 to $200,000 funding. If your project receives the most votes presumably for your area you'll get the funding. You do need to be a resident of the local area and a non profit organisation needs to back the funding, but if this is achieved you and they can submit as many ideas that improve your local area.

Applications close 24th June 2018.

Hope this helps.
