Simpler community gaming grant application ready

VICTORIA - The B.C. government is providing a shorter, simpler application form for local

VICTORIA – The B.C. government is providing a shorter, simpler application form for local organizations throughout the province re-applying for community gaming grants, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Bill Bennett announced recently.

Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch is implementing the new application form in response to the Community Gaming Grant Review released last January. Based on public input, the review made recommendations to help non-profit organizations continue to provide community-based services that benefit families, citizens and local economies throughout British Columbia.

Feedback from community groups reviewing the new application has been favourable, citing the straightforward, concise format. Again this year, the B.C. government is providing $135 million for community gaming grants shared by thousands of local organizations representing every region of the province.

Streamlining the application process is one step. This year we also increased the annual grant funding and restored eligibility to prior levels. Gaming grants help community organizations make local services available and affordable for families across British Columbia.”
