As news of LACMA's offer to merge with the financially struggling MOCA today, LA City Councilmembers Eric Garcetti and Jan Perry introduced a motion recommending that the city allocate up to $2.8 million to aid in the operation of MOCA.

If approved, funding from the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) would be allocated to MOCA upon three conditions: (1) if new leadership is installed at all critical levels of MOCA; (2) MOCA renews their commitment to remain in Cal Plaza Downtown; and (3) MOCA accepts offers of financial assistance from private individuals to increase its sustainability.
