Adoption of By-Laws
That the Board of Directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting adopts the
By-Laws of the Corporation as attached.
CSG Disbursement Ratio
Most of the federal funds appropriated to CPB are provided directly to public broadcasting stations each fiscal year through CPB's Community Service Grant (CSG) program in two equal payments in the fall and spring;
The importance of CSG support has increased due to the current economic environment; and
In August of 2012 the CPB Board of Directors authorized CPB management to modify the disbursement practices of the CSG program for FY 2013 and FY 2014 to provide 70 percent of the CSG to stations in the first payment and 30 percent in the second.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED,
The CPB Board of Directors authorizes CPB management to continue the modified disbursement practices of the CSG program for FY 2015 and FY 2016 to provide 70 percent of the CSG to stations in the first payment and 30 percent in the second.
