Bucks for basketball program

Steve Nash Youth Basketball in Hope is getting a cash infusion from a government grants program.

Hope’s Steve Nash Youth Basketball Program has received $1,800 from a provincial government grant program.

Thirteen B.C. communities are benefiting from the Local Sport Program Development fund.

The fund is administered by ViaSport. Money is typically used for equipment purchases, coach training or program development.

The total being distributed this round tops $30,000.

In addition to Hope, other communities receiving funds include Surrey, Invermere, Tofino, Kelowna, Lanztvilee, Merritt, Nanaimo, Port Simpson, Prince George, Kimberley, Cranbrook, Coquitlam and Golden.

Local Sport Program Development fund grants are designed to help establish new  sport programs or expand existing ones so that more British Columbians, particularly those who face barriers to sport, have opportunities to participate.

Applications are now being taken for the next round of funding, with more info online at viasport.ca
