“The staff and volunteers of these organizations work very hard and these grants allow groups in Aldergrove and Langley to serve the people in our community.”
-Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman
The transition funding is in addition to any other gaming grant funding the organizations will receive in 2011/12.
As well, daycares will receive $2 million from previously unallocated funding to bring their grants this year up to approximately the levels they received in previous years.
The Province will distribute these extra funds to these groups as part of a $33 million payment of community gaming grants to thousands of non-profit organizations in the human and social services sector in the first week of March.
In all, $120 million in community gaming grants will go to about 6,000 community groups during the current fiscal year.
