DELRAY BEACH HISTORICAL SOCIETY (DBHS)

Direct staff to include funding for the Delray Beach Historical Society in the CRA’s FY 18-19 Budget in the amount of $70,000.

Body
Background:
DBHS applied for CRA A-GUIDE Funding for FY 18-19 under the category of Economic Development and Recreation and Cultural Facilities. Funding is requested for one program (Program “A”), which is the DBHS’s Cultural Heritage Exhibit & Museum Programming. The specifics of the DBHS’s request are summarized below.

Funding Request Amount: $70,000

CRA Funds - Percentage of Budget: 25%

The additional funds would be used to maintain staff (includes a portion of the Executive Director, Program Manager and Archivist) update technology, program supplies and archive preservation materials/equipment and produce history exhibits.

FY 2017-18 Funding:
CRA A-GUIDE Funding: $75,000 (27% of Proposed Budget of $280,000)
CRA Funding on behalf of the City: $50,000
Total Funded in FY 2017-18: $125,000

FY 18 - 19
Program: “A” Cultural Heritage and Museum Program
Requesting Amount: $70,000
Program Budget: $178,000
