Total Funds available for 2005 grants

$3,953,449.00
* Due to the change in the availability of matching funds and the owner rescinding the offer to donate the buildings, the Pioneer Settlement for the Creative Arts withdrew their project from the ECHO grant program in March 2005, making $90,720 in funds available. On March 10, 2005 the County Council directed that the funds be used as part of the DBCC 05-07 exceptional grant award.
**The City of Daytona Beach declined the grant awarded to application 04-10 due to a lack of an appropriate public-approved location for the skateboard facility. The County Council awarded the funds on August 5, 2004 by fully funding the Mary McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center and the remaining funds were awarded to the City of Holly Hill’s application 04-02, Holly Land Park.
***Exceptional grant of $2.4M over 4 years awarded to the Lively Arts Center, Inc. in 2003.

The charts below have been revised to reflect the changes.
