State Aid to Libraries, Fiscal Year 2020

Print Version | Previous (2019) | RIPAY (current payments)

The enacted state budget for Fiscal Year 2020 provides for the following state aid to libraries. The RI General Assembly in 2019 included an increase of $200,000 for FY2020 following level funding of state aid since 2017; this has resulted in 22.14% apportioned to each municipality rather than the law's recommended 25% of eligible funds expended in FY2018 as described in RIGL 29-6-2(a); maintenance of effort is 100% as set forth in RIGL 29-6-3.
