Deltassist to benefit from gaming grant

Deltassist Family and Community Services Society is one of several not-for-profit organizations in B.C. that will benefit from the latest round of provincial gaming grants.

Deltassist is receiving $23,000 which will help purchase some IT telecommunications equipment.

Other organizations that received money include: recreation and arts facilities, health and social services, and search and rescue operations.

“We’re proud to provide capital funding through Community Gaming Grants program to organizations that are connecting people to services in their communities,” said Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “We are excited to see these investments take shape as they will have a profoundly beneficial effect on people and communities throughout British Columbia.”

In 2019-20, the province is providing $5 million in capital project grants for organizations to buy and upgrade community facilities, infrastructure and equipment.
