Community gaming grants provided by the Province of BC are a very important part of what makes so many non-profit events and services possible. Everything from youth sporting events and community fairs, to art exhibits and extra-curricular school activities, may be eligible for funding from the Province.
On July 28 it was announced by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development that BC's Community Gaming Grant Review team, led by independent reviewer Skip Triplett, will visit 14 different communities across the province between August 11 and September 7 to hear from British Columbians and examine the role of government in allocating gaming funds.
The team is looking to discover more about how we can improve things such as the application process, criteria and eligibility, existing legislation governing gaming grants, and the future role of government in providing grants.
Submissions can be mailed, faxed, submitted online, or presented at one of the community forums. Anyone interested in participating in this exercise is encouraged to register online as space is limited.
Triplett's final report is due on October 31, 2011.
