2020 Awarded Grants

Note: As of May 21, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on RAD revenue, the Board instated a 20% reduction to all 2020 operating grants and a freeze on 2020 capital grants. This is NOT reflected in the chart below, which represents the budget passed in November 2019.

 


 

RAD's Asset categories are as follows:

  1. Contractual Assets: Organizations selected in 1994 for 10-year funding commitments that were reauthorized for five additional years in 2005, 2010 and 2015;
  2. Annual Assets: Organizations that apply for support on an annual basis;
  3. Multi-Year Assets: Grants with commitments for more than one year of commitments beyond the contractual asset period.

Additional RAD support for Accessibility/Inclusion and Connection projects comes through the Special Project Grants program, with $250,000 available for 2020.
