After the application deadline, interdepartmental staff will evaluate applications to ensure that each proposed project meets the state statute eligibility criteria. Applications that meet the criteria will be evaluated by a Heritage Grant Review Panel. A majority vote of a quorum of the Heritage Grant Review Panel is required to recommend a Heritage Grant award. Recommendations will then be reviewed by the Historic Landmark and the Tourism Commissions who will make recommendations to City Council. The City Council will approve funding in excess of the City Manager’s authority (at or below $61,500 for Fiscal Year 2019-20); the City Manager will approve funding within the Manager’s authority.
