Eleven more public radio stations will get Radio Community Service Grant money in fiscal 2007.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting recently expanded the program, bringing bringing the number of organizations that will be receiving Radio CSGs to 406.
The eleven organizations and their respective stations are located in nine States (AZ, CA, CO, IL, MD, MN, MT, TX, VT).
If Congress passes CPB’s budget as is, the organizations representing the 11 stations would collectively receive more than $1 million in FY 2007.
Congress appropriates approximately $400 million annually to CPB, which, in turn, distributes these funds according to a statutory formula under which about 72% of funds go to 1,150 public television and radio stations. The CSG program is the largest grant program, accounting for $262.8 million in FY 2006.
