Invitation to Community Gaming Grants
2019 Capital Project Grants Webinar
Thurs April 25th, 9:00am – 11:00am
The Community Gaming Grant Branch is pleased to announce the 2019 Capital Project Grants Webinar. The $5 million Capital Project Grant program provides eligible not-for-profit organizations with up to $250,000 in funding for capital projects or acquisitions. The 2019 Capital Project Grant intake window will be open between June 1 and July 31 2019, with final notification by October 31.

Webinar Date: Thursday April 25th – 9:00 to 11:00AM PT

Please Note: A recording of the webinar will be available on our website and YouTube a few days after the presentation.


The Community Gaming Grants program distributes $140 million of commercial gambling revenues per year to not-for-profit community organizations throughout the province. Each year, $5 million of that budget is allocated to the Capital Project Program, for capital projects undertaken by not-for-profit organizations that cost between $20,000 and $1.25 million dollars and that provide significant benefit to their communities. Past projects include new buildings, childcare facilities, renovations, new kitchens, playgrounds, vehicles, audio/visual equipment, and equipment for individuals with a disability.

Interested in applying for a Capital Projects Sector Grant in 2019? Join staff from the Community Gaming Grants Branch for this interactive webinar to learn more about the grant, including eligibility criteria, how to apply, the assessment process, and what’s new for 2019. The first half of this presentation will review new program changes, eligibility rules, required documentation and the application. The second half will provide applicants with the opportunity to ask questions and interact with Branch staff.

The 2019 Capital Project Sector Guide will be available in early May 2019.
