Gov. Hogan yanks $1.25M in funding for National Sailing Hall of Fame
Gov. Larry Hogan has removed $1.25 million in capital funding for the National Sailing Hall of Fame as the organization moves closer to solidifying a deal in Rhode Island and moving out of Annapolis. The money was deauthorized in Hogan’s fiscal 2019 budget in part because of failure to meet fundraising goals. The summary of the decision lists the project “on hold.” The Hogan administration also has not given the organization another $2 million, originally planned as a follow up to the $1.25 million grant. “The National Sailing Hall Fame has consistently failed to meet their obligations under the Memorandum of Understanding with the state,” said Shareese N. Churchill, a Hogan spokeswoman.
