Endowment Board convenes, reserves funding for round two

The California Cultural and Historical Endowment Board met April 27th and 28th, 2006 at the California State Library in Sacramento to hear presentations from 53 grant applicants for the Endowment's second Round of Proposition 40 bond funds. The Board had $43 million of Proposition 40 funds available to award in this second Round.

To ensure more equitable consideration of applications, the Endowment Board grouped organizations into divisions so that the organizations would compete amongst entities with similar budgets. Also in this second round of distributions, two types of applications were accepted, Project Grants for which division groups could apply for funding between $25,000-$3,000,000 for capital projects, and Planning Grants, for which division groups could apply for funding between $10,000-$300,000 for planning activities related to capital projects. The Planning Grants were offered to allow applicants time to seriously consider whether they wish to pursue a capital project, given the budgetary expenses involved in such an undertaking.

At the conclusion of the 2-day meeting, the Board voted to reserve specific allocations for 45 applicants from the Project Grants, and award 34 from the Planning Grants.

The Endowment Board received 263 total applications this funding Round. The total those applicants requested was approximately $268 million, an amount that shows the tremendous need for this program. The Board was pleased to reserve funding for 45 projects, and to award funding for 34 planning grants, 79 total applicants whose reserved and awarded funding totals approximately $43 million.

Proposition 40 called for the creation of the California Cultural and Historical Endowment to support the “acquisition, development, preservation, and interpretation of buildings, structures, sites, places, and artifacts that preserve and demonstrate culturally significant aspects of California 's history and for grants for these purposes.” To carry out Proposition 40's mandate, the Endowment will, over the Rounds established by its Board, distribute $122 million in Proposition 40 funds.
