Groups receive cash
North Okanagan clubs and organizations are receiving an infusion of cash.
Provincial gaming grant funds totalling $287,495 will support 28 human and social service community groups in the Shuswap constituency, while $393,750 will go to 44 groups in Vernon-Monashee.
The transition funding is in addition to any other gaming grant funding the organizations will receive in 2011/12.
As well, B.C. daycares will receive $2 million from previously unallocated funding to bring their grants this year up to approximately the levels they received in previous years.
