State Aid to Libraries, Fiscal Year 2017

Print Version | Current | Previous (2016) | RIPAY (current payments)

The state budget for Fiscal Year 2017 (Executive Summary, Appendix C, page C-10) provides for the following state aid to libraries. The RI General Assembly in 2016 included an increase of $900,000 for FY2017 following level funding of state aid since 2008; this has resulted in 23.65% apportioned to each municipality rather than the law's recommended 25% of eligible funds expended in FY2015 as described in RIGL 29-6-2(a); maintenance of effort is 100% as set forth in RIGL 29-6-3. Level-funding in FY2017 at the 2008 level would have resulted in funding at 21.17% of local appropriations and expenditures.
