Curling receives over $1 million from province in capital project and community gaming grants

Gibsons Curling Club, Powell River Curling Club, Penticton Curling Club and Terrace Curling Club are all recipients of Capital Project Grants from the province of BC.

Gibsons Curling Club has received $61,850 as part of the 2017-18 grant intake. Powell River Curling Club is receiving $173,705, Penticton Curling Club is receiving $107,000, and Terrace Curling Club is receiving $120,000 as part of the 2018-19 grant intake.

Capital Project Grants are for projects that are for community benefit and are accessible to the public in the categories of facility construction and maintenance, community infrastructure, and acquisition of fixed capital assets like vehicles and equipment.

In addition, over $798,000 in 2017-18 Community Gaming Grants has been allocated towards curling in BC.

Thirty-five Curl BC member facilities from 10 of Curl BC’s 11 regions, as well as the Optimist Junior Interclub Curling League and Curl BC, are among the recipients of these grants.

This significant support represents a $170,000 increase in the amount of money designated towards curling by the province compared to two years ago.

“Congratulations to the BC curling clubs that received Community Gaming Grants in 2017-18, and we look forward to hearing how everyone did in 2018-19,” said Curl BC CEO Scott Braley. “And wonderful to see both Gibsons Curling Club and Powell River Curling Club receive significant capital grants from BC Gaming to assist with upgrading their facilities – well done!”

Curl BC assists curling centres with their Capital Project and Community Gaming Grants each year. These grants provide funding to eligible organizations for direct delivery of approved ongoing programs to their communities.

The next intake period for Community Gaming Grants begins on March 1st. Clubs wanting help accessing a grant and/or increasing the amount they receive from these grants can contact Scott Braley at sbraley@curlbc.ca, Melissa Sim at msism@curlbc.ca, or Jack Bowman at jackbow@telus.net.
