Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood I

CHOB Banner

Status

Closed as of June 30, 2018.  Final paperwork being prepared to submit to State for reimbursement of expenditures as of 7/10/2018.

Grant Mission:

To preserve, restore and rehabilitate the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood, interior and exterior.

Grant Type:

Reimbursement:  This grant will reimburse the City of DeFuniak Springs once approved expenditures are made at various benchmarks of project completion from July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018.  

Background:

This grant was originally acquired to cover all preservation, restoration and rehabilitation efforts of the interior and exterior of the historic structure.  After the project started, the City hired an architect who reevaluated plans and determined that the funding offered by the State of Florida would not be sufficient to accomplish all of the original goals planned by the City.  The project has moved forward through the grant term (7/1/2016 - 6/30/2018), but the project is incomplete and the structure is unusable at this time.  Thus, the title of this grant changed to Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood Phase I.  The City's grant writer has submitted a Phase II grant application to the State which is now being reviewed by the Florida Division of Historic Resources.
