Langley City Council awards $140,426 in grants to help local non-profits

One of Langley City Council’s policies is to make $168,000 in Community Grants available annually. The City funds this grant program out of the revenue it receives from the casino.

Beyond non-profits, Community Grants are also available to people in a neighbourhood that want to host a block party to promote getting to know your neighbours, improving health and community safety.
