There might be a glimmer of hope for the Beaches Jazz Fest.

Wednesday, it came to light that it would not receive the $75,000 in provincial funding it needed for this summer.

But on Thursday, Minister of Tourism, Sport and Culture Michael Chan says the province will speak with organizers to go over the grant application which was rejected to see if there's any possibility for funding.

The money represents about 20 per cent of the event's budget and organizers have said the festival would have to be scaled back without it.
