Grants for Organizations

Main Page Content

The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs has developed a series of general operating support and project-based grant programs that serves as a portfolio of public sector investments to promote the growth of Miami-Dade County's cultural community. Each program is designed to address specific kinds of cultural projects and organizations. An overview of these grants programs is in the section below.

Potential applicants to the Department of Cultural Affairs must carefully review the grant program guidelines for the program they intend to apply. The guidelines set forth the goals, eligibility requirements and instructions for completion of the application form.

Applications to the Department of Cultural Affairs are submitted and reviewed via Culture Grants Online (CGO), the Department's online grant system. First-time applicants to the Department of Cultural Affairs are required to attend the grants program-specific workshop that pertains to them to learn how to create user accounts and navigate the system.*  Refer to the grant program guidelines and information page for more information regarding CGO.

All meetings, workshops and panel review meetings are subject to change, and are held at the Department's offices, unless otherwise noted. Our office is located at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center, 111 NW 1 Street, 6th Floor.

Annually, the Department publishes the Grants Programs and Techincal Assistance Workshops Guide for Organizations in three languages:  English, Spanish and Creole. Organizations may be eligible to apply to more than one grant program, but restrictions apply. Consult the Department's Grants Programs Crossover Chart and refer to each program's guidelines for complete details.
