FY 2024-2025 Developing Arts in Neighborhoods (DAN) Grants Program Guidelines

The Developing Arts in Neighborhoods (DAN) Grants Program provides funding and technical assistance support to small and/or developing cultural groups with annual organizational budgets under $100,000 that create, present or produce year-round cultural activities and arts programs in Miami-Dade County at the grassroots level, including underserved neighborhoods, communities or special populations. Applicants to this program must have at least a two year track record of creating, producing or presenting year-round cultural programs and activities. Colleges, universities, municipalities and governmental entities are not eligible to apply.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RETURNING APPLICANTS: Returning applicants will have the option to submit a completed application, including all required support materials, no later than one full calendar week in advance of the grant program’s published application deadline for a thorough “Courtesy Review” by the Program Administrator. Returning applicants who waive their option for a Courtesy Review and submit their applications by the grant program’s published deadline will receive a technical sufficiency review only. Applications received from first-time applicants by the grant program’s published application deadline will be reviewed by the Program Administrator and are exempt of meeting the program’s Courtesy Review deadline. For more information about the Courtesy Review policy, please refer to the DEADLINES section of the grant program guidelines.
