Background Discussion

On August 25, 2015, the Board accepted a FY 2015-2016 State Aid to Libraries Grant and subsequent approval of a Grant Agreement with the Florida Department of State, Division of Library and Information Services.

The Neighborhood Services Department has been notified that the grant amount has been recalculated. As a result of the recalculation, Manatee County is eligible to receive $353.00 in additional grant funds, for a total grant amount of $195,018. The additional funds will be part of the Library's annual materials budget.

A signed amendment to the existing grant agreement is required to receive the additional funds, and must be remitted by June 29, 2016.
