Councilmember Licata applauds new Cultural Facilities Program

 

Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata issued the following statement thanking Mayor McGinn for debuting the new Cultural Facilities Program: 

“Arts are a passion of mine as they are for many members of the City Council and residents of Seattle. For years the Council has been approached for capital funds by a variety of arts and cultural organizations. Last year, the Council created a capital grant program and a competitive vetting process in the Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs to address these requests.

“I appreciate that the Executive has implemented this program and although only one-time funding, this will provide these organizations with the extra help they need to make necessary improvements to their facilities.”

Funding for this program was created through adoption of the 2012 budget. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/R50AEF .
