BOARD/COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION African American Resource Advisory Commission Recommendation Number: 20220330-001: Equitable Funding and Completion for the George Washington Carver Library Museum and Heritage Center WHEREAS, the African American Resource Advisory Commission (the "Commission") is authorized by Austin City Code§ 2-1-101 to advise the City Council on issues related to the quality of life for the City's African American community; and WHEREAS, the Commission is specifically authorized to recommend programs designed to alleviate any inequities that may confront African Americans in social, economic, and vocational pursuits, including (1) health care; (2) housing, including affordable housing, home ownership, and homelessness; (3) entertainment opportunities for professionals and students; (4) employment; and (5) cultural venues, including museums, theaters, art galleries, and music venues; and WHEREAS, the George Washington Carver Library Museum and Heritage Center continues to be historically underfunded when compared to the Asian American resource Center (AARC) ($100K to $200K less) and the Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC) (~$400K less). The Carver’s funding has always been about $300,000 behind the MACC and the Dougherty Arts Center (DAC) over the last 15 years. Funding is even a little below the AARC, which is a much smaller facility. In 2021, the Museum and Cultural Programs Department requested more funding for budget year FY2022, but additional funding did not get approved in the budget process; and WHEREAS, the following charts document the Funding shortfalls by budget year; and Carver Museum Budget by Budget Fiscal Year Amended CYE Actual % of Budget BFY Proposed 2018 $ 923,947 $1,011,531.00 $ 1,011,531 $1,046,643.39 $ 1,033,036 $1,067,316.00 $ 1,066,801 $1,080,070.10 $ 1,078,397 $1,203,560.00 $ 1,116,380 $1,338,828.82 2019 2020 Balance ($35,112.39) ($12,754.10) ($135,268.82) View/Edit [View] [View] [View] 103.47% 101.19% 111.24% 2021 2022 $ 1,156,002 $1,165,335.00 $ 1,182,440 $1,193,231.75 $ 1,446,546 $1,180,023.00 $ 1,162,473 $ 0 $ 1,267,320 $516,074.75 $0.00 ($27,896.75) $663,948.25 $0.00 2023 Mexican American Cultural Center Budget by Budget Fiscal Year $0.00 Amended CYE Actual % of Budget BFY Proposed 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 $ 1,448,344 $1,487,864.00 $ 1,494,038 $1,539,947.66 $ 1,551,224 $1,562,145.00 $ 1,562,152 $1,413,256.91 $ 1,552,574 $1,583,185.00 $ 1,496,402 $1,318,290.75 $ 1,513,827 $1,578,675.00 $ 1,579,594 $1,396,637.50 $ 1,578,675 $1,568,622.00 $ 1,568,622 $ 0 $ 1,601,885 $630,693.37 $0.00 Balance ($52,083.66) $148,888.09 $264,894.25 $182,037.50 $937,928.63 $0.00 $0.00 2023 Asian American Resource Center Budget by Budget Fiscal Year 102.39% 43.73% 0.00% [View] [View] [Edit] View/Edit [View] [View] [View] [View] [View] [Edit] 103.50% 90.47% 83.27% 88.47% 40.21% 0.00% Amended CYE Actual …
