Simpler gaming grant application ready


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 today. 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.
