Body

DISCUSSION

Over the past few years, the PG&E Corporation has approached the City of Merced seeking opportunities to invest in arts locally.  Last year, a $3,000 funding opportunity became available.  With the understanding that the City Council was working to establish an Arts and Cultural Advisory Commission, staff made a request of PG&E to allow the funds to be carried over to this fiscal year. The grant does not require a City match.

 

This grant will be provided to the City’s newly established Arts and Culture Advisory Committee as a project opportunity. The Commission will provide a recommendation to the City Council on the use of the funds for a specific project.  Staff will continue to seek additional funding opportunities, in partnership with the Arts and Culture Advisory Commission, to enhance this program within the City.
