Provincial sports funding up for grabs


The Province is investing more money into various sports programs across B.C.

The Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development announced that an extra $100,000 will be directed towards the Local Sport Development Program.

Stephanie Cadieux says the funding will help British Columbians from all walks of life reap the health and social benefits of participating in various sports.

The Local Sport Development Fund had been created in 2008 by the 2010 Legacies Now organization.

In the past two years, two communities in the Peace River region have received grant funding from the Program.

The Fort St. John Elks Speed Skating Club received a $2,500 grant in April 2009 and the Hudson’s Hope Outdoor Recreation Club received a $910 grant in October of 2008.

Interested groups can apply for grant funding of up to $2,000 by Jan. 31, 2011.

Applications are available here.
