NOW OPEN – HUMAN AND SOCIAL SERVICES GRANT

The Community Gaming Grant Application process can be complex, especially for this sector. The Fraser Valley CCGA wants to make sure you are well prepared to submit your application, with all the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed! We welcome you to set up a meeting with Tracy Butterfield, the FVCCGA Facilitator, and she will work with you to answer questions, review the guidelines and discuss any concerns you may have regarding your application.

Human and Social Services Sector
Organizations within this sector must deliver programs that significantly contribute to the quality of life in a community. Programs in this sector may include support services for people dealing with diseases, food banks, homeless shelters, drop-in centres, neighbourhood houses, Aboriginal friendship centres, transition houses, Scouts, Cadets and daycares. Service clubs and the British Columbia Association for Charitable Gaming (BCACG) and Community Charitable Gaming Associations (CCGA) are also included in this sector.

Eligibility for service clubs A service club is eligible for a Community Gaming Grant if it meets the eligibility criteria in section 3.1 and has 10 or more voting members. Service clubs must apply under the Human and Social Services sector. Examples of service clubs are provided in Appendix III.

Eligibility for the British Columbia Association for Charitable Gaming and Community Charitable Gaming Associations The British Columbia Association for Charitable Gaming (BCACG) is a provincial not-for-profit organization that liaises between community groups and the Province. The BCACG provides support services to charities and non-profit organizations for the purpose of applying for Community Gaming Grants. Community Charitable Gaming Associations (CCGAs) are not-for-profit organizations that support charities and non-profit groups with their applications for Community Gaming Grants. CCGAs work closely with the British Columbia Association for Charitable Gaming (BCACG) as the provincial coordinating group and are in place to be a liaison and conduit between community groups and the Province. Both the BCACG and CCGAs are eligible for Community Gaming Grants for the sole purpose of delivering programming in support of the Community Gaming Grants program.

An information exchange session will be held for this sector, so please watch our Facebook, Website and Newsletters for dates for this session. In order to receive our newsletter, you must be a member of the FVCCGA. Membership is FREE and is open to all Not for Profit organizations that qualify for a Community Gaming Grant.
