Grant approvals

It should be noted that while many of the grants listed benefit specific communities, many programs run across several locations or state-wide, therefore any attempt to calculate investment by location will be a significant underestimation.

Investments from the CSF are made based on community need rather than being matched to gaming expenditure in any given area.
