(This amendment provides additional funds to support planning initiatives to commemorate the 400th anniversary of four landmark events in Virginia and the nation's history. These funds are allocated under the newly established agency code for Commemorations that is separate from the ongoing operating budget of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation. The planning cycle is condensed and the scope and scale of the 2019 Commemoration will rely on public-private partnerships. Resources will allow for staff support for the Steering Committee, awareness building initiatives, development of education services, events, marketing campaigns, state wide and national engagement, and partnerships and sponsorship programs. Of these totals, $641,300 the first year and $878,000 the second year are for commemoration staffing needs and $2.9 million the first year and $6.1 million the second year support the tourism partnership with the Virginia Tourism Corporation, including kick-off events, outreach, and advertising.)
