CDC Looking To Distribute Dakota Dunes Profits

Community organizations within a 75-kilometre radius of the Whitecap Dakota First Nation have an opportunity to tap into more funds.


The Dakota Dunes Casino’s Community Development Corporation is holding a public information meeting tonight in Saskatoon to explain the application process.


CDC general manager Wilma Isbister expects to have between $4 million and $6 million to give to various organizations.


Isbister says the CDC supports a variety of initiatives under 10 different categories — including health, justice, education, and social development.


She says the CDC will start taking applications in March, with a deadline of mid-April.


Cheques will be delivered the end of June.


The meeting takes place tonight at 6:30 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn in Saskatoon.
