The Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC), an agency of the Ministry of Youth & Culture is reporting significant savings on rental costs and improved efficiency in the execution of its productions since the CHASE Fund provided funding for a Box truck, sound equipment, multimedia projector, projector screens and 2,000 chairs.
