Organizations in the Cariboo will be getting funds from the community gaming grant, which totals just over $48 million.
Out of that total, the Cariboo region will receive $743,150 that will go towards arts and culture, and sports.
“People’s lives are enhanced by the sports, arts and cultural programming that not-for-profit organizations offer throughout British Columbia,” said Anne Kang, Minister of Municipal Affairs.
“Healthy, vibrant communities are key to a healthy, vibrant province and these grants are one way our government is helping people in communities thrive.”
The province distributes $140 million every year to non profit organizations that deliver services and make life better for people in BC.
