Community Gaming Grants: 2019 Capital Project Grants Info Session

Thursday April 25, 2019 | 9:00-11am PDT | Register today

The Community Gaming Grants program distributes $140 million of commercial gambling revenues per year to not-for-profit community organizations throughout the province. Each year a portion of that budget is allocated to capital projects undertaken by not-for-profit organizations that cost between $20,000 and $1.25 million dollars  and that provide significant benefit to their communities.
Interested in applying for a Capital Projects Sector Grant in 2019? Join staff from the Community Gaming Grants Branch for this interactive webinar to learn more about the grant, including eligibility criteria, how to apply, and the assessment process for determining which organizations will receive funding. The first half of this presentation will review eligibility, required documentation and the application. The second half will provide applicants with the opportunity to ask questions and interact with Branch staff.

Speaker(s): Representatives for the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Community Gaming Grants Branch
