FOUR PRESENTATION POINTS FOR THE GAMING GRANT REVIEW
SEE ALSO: ACTION ALERTS
AABC board member David Stewart is presenting the following four points to the Castelgar forum on Monday, August 15th:
- Streamline the application and reporting process for organizations whose budgets are under $50,000 per year
- Re-structure eligibility to include adult engagement in Arts, Culture, and Heritage activities
- Use gaming grants to increase the Province’s funding to Arts, Culture, and Heritage to at least the National Average. BC has, for too long had the questionable distinction of ranking thirteenth of all the provinces and territories when it comes to arts and heritage funding.
- Re-introduce and strengthen options for multi-year funding to enhance the sustainability of charitable organizations.
David is president of both the BC Choral Federation and the North Kootenay Lake Arts & Heritage Council.

Is this a serious request for citizen recommendations–or just the usual Liberal window dressing?
