The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary handed out over $300,000 from the Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) Community Initiatives Program.

The City of Rossland had over $46,000 worth of CBT grant money, and allocated a large portion to its sporting youth.

The Red Mountain academies received almost $8,500; Black Jack Cross Country Ski Club, $2,580; and the Red Mountain Racers, $3,900.

Each of these entities offer a full-spectrum package to student athletes, aged 13-18 years, including coaching and educational options to meet training and competitive needs.

The Rossland Historical Museum and Archives received two grants, totalling almost $5,000, to improve its sound and recording equipment and inventory heritage homes.

With over $30,000 to allot, Area B supported recreation.

The Red Mountain Racers and Black Jack Cross Country Ski Club each received $4,000. In addition, the Genelle Recreation Commission was granted $3,000 and the Silver City Trap and Skeet Club, $3,000.
