Province puts it money down on Langley soccer organization

A Langley sports group is benefitting from provincial gaming grants

The Langley United Youth Soccer Association is getting $100,000 under the B.C. government’s community gaming grant program.

“Langley United Youth Soccer does a fantastic job of offering our young people this experience and I couldn’t be happier with the announcement of this grant.” Said Langley MLA Mary Polak, “Soccer is a game that all kids enjoy playing.  It is a great way to keep a healthy and active lifestyle while helping kids meet new friends and develop a good support network.”

These grants are awarded under the Sport and Arts and Culture category of the community gaming grant program, which allows non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. Gaming grants are also awarded in the categories of Public Safety, Human and Social Services, Parent Advisory Councils and District Parent Advisory Councils, and Environment.

Every year, the provincial government approves $135 million in gaming grants that benefit more than 5,000 local non-profit organizations that serve communities throughout British Columbia.

Organizations interested in applying for community gaming grants can find information and applications at gaming.gov.bc.ca/grants/.
