St. Lucia – Two regionally-based financial institutions are partnering with 1st National Bank Saint Lucia Limited to finance a game-changing $80 million sporting infrastructure programme in Saint Lucia spearheaded by the National Lotteries Authority (NLA).
The National Bank of Dominica and Grenada Co-operative Bank Limited have expressed confidence in the NLA and Saint Lucian economy and will share the financial responsibility with 1st National Bank Saint Lucia Limited to rehabilitate several local sporting facilities to benefit our athletes and youth.
The National Bank of Dominica has been operating since 1978 and is the leading financial institution in Dominica with $1.58 billion in assets as of June 2021. The Grenada Co-operative Bank Limited opened in 1933 and currently manages $2.2 billion in assets as of 2023.

Other sporting facilities in communities throughout Saint Lucia will receive attention. The NLA will channel funding to support targeted youth programmes facilitated by key government agencies and local NGOs.
