YourCommunity.space: it’s your community, your space to live! Your community and society has many small but important groups that contribute to making South Australia a livable place, and many of these, from CFS, the local park or the local community hall, only function through the support of small government grants.
From policy makers, to the wider Australian community, there can be confusion over how and where government grants are applied spent within the community, whether there is value to taxpayers and the wider community, and it can be difficult to understand how grants related to existing community resources, or importantly, overlooked areas where improved grantmaking might be of benefit. While information is available, it is not easily aggregated, or requires scrolling through disparate data sets. Of additional interest is how grants are allocated to regional areas, and how existing resources in those areas might be leveraged or improved.
Mapping Between data sets:

From this we mapped post codes to regions and local government areas to postcodes.
