The Capital Development (CAP) grants program provides funding assistance to non-profit cultural organizations for capital improvement projects that are designed to expand, renovate, construct, and/or equip cultural facilities located within Miami-Dade County. These capital projects assist the nonprofit cultural community in providing increased public service, greater access, enhanced exhibition or performing space and in developing cultural facilities that can be operated more effectively and efficiently. Programs in facilities for which grants have been provided must be ADA accessible and promoted to the general public.
Projects must have strong evidence of prior planning and imminent completion or “readiness” factor, as well a documented, secured maximum possible public and/or private match. Facilities improvement projects should be designed to improve the artistic capabilities of and/or the audience ability to experience programs in the applicant facilities. Grants are intended to have a major impact on the applicant organization, the patrons served by that organization and the surrounding community. Priority consideration will be given to facilities proposing ADA-compliance improvements.
Mandatory Pre-Application Requirements:
All applicants are REQUIRED to schedule a pre-grant submission consultation at least one week prior to the application deadline, either in person or by telephone, with the CAP program administrator before access will be granted to the online application.
In addition, if you are a first-time applicant and/or a new staff member who is unfamiliar with the CGO grants system, your consultation appointment must be in person and will require additional time to cover the CGO system basics.
There are no exceptions to these requirements.
To schedule your consultation, contact Kelly Allocco at 305-375-4636, or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
