January 17, 2022 LANGLEY – Capital Grants through the Community Gaming Grants (CGG) program will help multiple organizations build, upgrade, and deliver better services to Langley.
“This round of gaming grants will be incredibly impactful in our community. I’m especially looking forward to seeing the renovations at Foundry Langley, an organization that will offer mental health and substance youth support, as well as Primary Care for vulnerable youth,” said Megan Dykeman, MLA for Langley-East
The Capital Grants stream of the CGG supports not-for-profits and other community organizations to purchase, build, upgrade, or expand infrastructure that allows them to continue providing services or meet growing demand. In Langley, the following organizations are receiving funding:

• Encompass Support Services Society (Foundry Langley)- $250,000
• Langley Rugby Club- $250,000
“Grants like these support a large range of important services and activities for people in Langley- including sports! Funding for improvements and upgrades to both the curling and rugby clubs means more people will be able to get out and enjoy local sports and recreation,” said Andrew Mercier, MLA for Langley.
The Capital Grants stream is providing over $5 million to 45 organizations across British Columbia for the 2021/22 fiscal year.
