Apply for Gaming Grants
Each year, the Province of British Columbia distributes $135 million to over 5,000 local organizations across the province, including many in South Delta. The money comes from the Province's gambling revenue.
Grants are available for a broad range of community programs and services, and are distributed based on a transparent set of eligibility requirements. If you represent a non-profit organization that operates primarily for community benefit, your organization likely qualifies for funding from the Community Gaming Grant program.
