Ever wondered how the money raised by the lottery supports education?
You can find the latest information for each of the state’s 100 counties on nclottery.com and in new brochures headed to a lottery retail store near you. The information, provided by the state, shows:
- How much money your county received to help build and repair its schools?
- How many scholarships and grants helped make college more affordable for students in your county.
- How much your school system received for school staff and school transportation.
- How many four-year-olds from your county could attend a free NC Pre-K program.
Every year, your lottery receives a report from the state on how money raised – thanks to your play – is distributed to each and every one of our 100 counties. The lottery uses the report to update education information on its website and brochures shared in all stores selling lottery tickets.
View the new information on the Education page of nclottery.com.
Look for the brochure in the lottery play center wherever lottery tickets are sold. Each county gets its own version.
Last year, almost half of the money distributed helped to meet the need for new schools and to repair older ones. Every county received funds to help build and repair schools, including $300,000 each in repair and renovations funds.
Twenty-eight counties received additional grants, up to $40 million, to help build a new school.
If you want to see the total amount your county has received since the lottery started, just check out your county’s page in the Education section.
The lottery is proud to do its part in supporting public education in North Carolina.
