Resolution relating to acceptance and expenditure of a Wisconsin Arts Board 2024 Regranting Program Grant.
This resolution authorizes the Department of City Development, Milwaukee Arts Board, to accept and expend a 2024 Regranting Program Grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board in the amount of $48,000 with a City Share of $24,000 and a Grantor Share of $24,000. 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, It appears that City involvement in this grant and aid program will result in a major benefit to the City by awarding grants to Milwaukee nonprofit art organizations or nonprofit organizations that have a department with the sole mission of the presentation and/or production of art or arts programming; and
