FY 2020-2021 Cultural Development Grants (CDG) Program Guidelines

The Cultural Development Grants Program, provides general operating support grants and technical assistance to a selected group of Miami-Dade County's mid-sized, artistically accomplished and culturally diverse performing, visual, literary and presenting arts organizations that are defining the cultural and artistic voice of Miami. Qualifying organizations are committed year-round to the creation or presentation of art, within or across artistic fields and disciplines, which demonstrate the potential to achieve regional, national, or international visibility as evidenced by current programs and management structure and many times engage in strategic partnerships for greater artistic success.

As a component of the technical assistance offered through the CDG Program, each grantee is able to access a subsidy for eligible expenses travel, consultant(s) and/or technical assistance. Funds may be applied to opportunities that directly enhance the artistic and/or administrative quality of the organization, such as conference travel, workshop attendance, board development consultants, etc. Carefully review the CDG Travel/Consultant Assistance Program Guidelines and the CDG Travel/Consultant Assistance Program Application and Final Report Form, and contact Adriana Pérez at (305) 375-5019 with questions.
