A message from BC Gaming Grants Branch
Hello Community Gaming Grant “Environment” Partners,
Each year, the Community Gaming Grant program distributes $140 million of commercial gambling revenues to not-for-profit community organizations in British Columbia. Over 5,000 community organizations from across the province receive funding each year. All not-for-profit organization who meet the eligibility criteria are eligible for a grant.
Between July 1 and August 31 2019, the “Environment” intake window for grant applications is open. Each year, over 110 organizations receive funding in the Environment Sector. Organizations in the Environment Sector may deliver a wide range of programs that revitalize, protect, or provide education on British Columbia’s ecosystems and environment, or protect the welfare of domestic animals and/or wildlife. Programs that primarily support research, lobbying or political action are not eligible. Examples of programs in this sector may include:
- ecosystem conservation (e.g. land stewardship, invasive species, greenbelts, watersheds, garbage clean-up),
- public education (e.g. outdoor education, naturalists, compost or agricultural education),
- climate change adaptation (e.g. awareness, emissions reduction, alternative energy), or
- programs to support agriculture, food production or local food systems.
