D.C.: New Dedicated Revenue Stream for DC Commission

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) has a new dedicated revenue stream, thanks to the legislative work of D.C.’s city council and mayor. A law enacted in August (see Subtitle X on page 102) directs a portion of the city’s annual sales-tax revenue to DCCAH. In addition to the commission’s base budget allocation, this revenue mechanism will support the agency in two stages. From fiscal years 2015 through 2018, DCCAH will receive the net amount of sales-tax revenue that exceeds estimated projections, up to $22 million per year. Beyond FY2018, DCCAH will receive a set 1/23 of the city’s annual sales-tax collection. The funding is unrestricted. The precise amount of tax revenue DCCAH receives, however, will be offset by any monies the agency doesn’t allocate through its budget process. For more information, contact DCCAH Legislative and Community Affairs Director Victoria Murray Baatin.
