Resolution relative to acceptance and expenditure of a Wisconsin Arts Board 2020 Regranting Program Grant.



This resolution authorizes the Department of City Development, Milwaukee Arts Board, to accept and expend a 2020 Regranting Program Grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board in the amount of $46,120 with a City Share of $23,060 and a Grantor Share of $23,060. The purpose of the program is to award grants to Milwaukee nonprofit 501(c)(3) art organizations that conduct art programming.



Whereas, The City of Milwaukee (“City”) appears to be eligible for grant funds from the Wisconsin Arts Board for art programming; and

Whereas, The operation of this Regranting Program Grant from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 will cost $46,120, of which $23,060 (50 percent) will be provided by the City and $23,060 (50 percent) will be provided by the Grantor; now, therefore, be it
