CRIT has allocated more than $43,000 from its Tribal gaming contribution to community needs in La Paz County. The contribution, part of the compact between the Tribe and the State of Arizona that governs certain kinds of Indian gaming, is the latest in CRIT’s sharing of gaming revenues with the community.
The projects included:
“We are pleased to be able to help La Paz County and its residents improve our overall quality of life with these funds,” said Tribal Chairman Daniel Eddy, Jr. “These amenities will help our community serve our children, elderly and families, which is precisely what we believe proceeds of Indian gaming should be used for.”
- Dedicating $12,000 to purchase new bleachers and shade covers for Parker Ball Park.
- Dedicating $25,000 to the County’s Meals on Wheels program for the purchase of a new van for the service, with any additional revenue going toward operations and maintenance.
- Dedicating $6,000 to the county for the purchase of a permanent shade structure for use at the Parker Cemetery.
In the past, CRIT has helped to fund several other critical programs, including improvements to La Paz County Hospital and enhancements to the Quartzsite Public Library, Salome and Wenden Community Center, and Parker Swimming Pool.
