FY 2024-2025 Miami Individual Artists (MIA) Grants Program Guidelines


The Miami Individual Artists (MIA) Grants Program provides non-matching awards to individual artists of all disciplines in Miami-Dade County on a competitive basis to support their artistic development and practice. In recognition of the contributions of Miami-Dade’s outstanding artists to the fundamental vitality and creativity of our cultural community, the MIA Grants Program strongly encourages applications from professional artists of the highest caliber with a recognized body of original artwork, and who are deeply rooted in Miami’s diverse cultural life.

Please note that awards are taxable. If awarded, it is strongly recommended that the selected artist consult their own tax advisor or the Internal Revenue Service to determine their tax liability.
