Grant Application to Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs for General Program Support, Multidisciplinary Presenter Category (NB)

This item requests approval by the City Commission for the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs (PRCA) to accept, if awarded, a General Program Support grant from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.
