For each successful applicant the Public Art Subcommittee will establish funding benchmarks. A final date for raising matching funds (based on the size of the project budget) will be enforced. Funds will not be released until a match has been verified. Fundraising progress reports MUST be submitted regularly. If projects fail to raise the required match within the stipulated time period, Milwaukee Arts Board funds will remain in the Public Art Conservation Fund to be used in future cycles for other projects.
Grantees will be expected to appear before the Milwaukee Arts Board to make a final report on their projects. A written report including an accounting of all money spent and raised, a summary of the conservation work done, and pictures of the completed work will be required.
If the Milwaukee Arts Board does not receive sufficient valid requests for funds, it can choose to hold funds over to the next cycle or apply funds to the conservation of public art works administered by the City. Disbursement of funds will be dependent on reaching benchmarks established at the time of the allocation and on submitting documentation of expenditures and funds raised.
