Provincial money coming to local arts, culture and sports programs

Several Terrace organizations are getting a boost from the province’s community gaming grant money allocated to support arts, culture and sports programs.

The B.C. Community Gaming Grants program provides up to $140 million to approximately 5,000 non-profit organizations in British Columbia each year.

“These programs bring people together, fostering community connections through art, cultural programming and athletic activities for all ages and abilities,” says Selina Robinson, minister of municipal affairs and housing in a press release.

“Our government is proud to support organizations contributing to vibrant, healthy communities across B.C.”

In this round, more than 700 non-profit organizations will receive $18.3 million for visual and performing arts, literature and festivals, as well as Indigenous and cultural programs. In addition, $27 million will go to more than 800 sports sector organizations for activities including soccer, swimming, hockey, cycling, and Special Olympics.
