PURPOSE AND EFFECT: This amendment will transfer the Historical Museums Grants-in-Aid Program from the management of the Division of Historical Resources to the Division of Cultural Affairs, and will incorporate statutory changes to the program that became effective July 1, 2008, as authorized by Section 265.708, Florida Statutes. The amendment will also establish new and existing eligibility criteria for the Cultural Support Grants Program and Historical Museum Grants-in-Aid Program, and will delete Indemnity Grant Program, because this program was repealed by the 2005 Legislature (see former Sections 265.51 – 265.55), Florida Statutes).
SUBJECT AREA TO BE ADDRESSED: This amendment will incorporate the recommendations of The Historical Museums Taskforce by it creating a two (2) year funding period, rather than annual one; it will provide three (3) levels of funding, rather than two (2) for the General Program Support category; and it will provide for alternate years in which museums requesting certain levels of funding will compete with each other for funding. This amendment will also provide that non-program-related operating costs, such as utilities, may not be included in the Grant Proposal Budget, and it clarifies the eligibility criteria for multidisciplinary museums who apply for funding. The amendment will require that grant deadlines be posted on the Division of Cultural Affairs' website, rather than in the Division's online newsletter.
