The Broward Cultural Division recently announced a grant application workshop for the Cultural Diversity Program for eligible, not-for-profit cultural organizations to be held on September 9th at the Broward County Main Library, at 6 pm.
Those who may apply include eligible not-for-profit organizations, whose primary mission is cultural, and develops and sustains the cultures, arts, and artists that are rooted in, and reflective of, the cultural heritage and traditions of the community; and whose principal office address, as recorded in the Secretary of State’s Office, is in Broward County, and must have operated in their respective discipline(s) in Broward County for a minimum of one (1) uninterrupted year immediately preceding the date of application, and provided services in Broward County for a minimum of six months in the preceding year, and a governing board, at least 50 percent of whom reside in Broward County, which meets regularly and operates under a set of bylaws.
Awards range from $5,100 to $25,000. Funds may be used for reimbursable program expenses associated with the organization’s total program or for specific projects. This grant program may award funding on a multi-year (up to five years) basis. By year three, the awardee should provide a one-to-one match for the grant program funds. The aim of multi-year funding is to maintain quality programming while assisting the organization in developing its own artistic, management and financial capacities. The workshop will also cover how to submit an online application.
The application deadline for the FY 2017 funding cycle is October 15, 2015 at 11:59 pm. There is no fee for the workshop and interested persons should RSVP online, in advance. For further information contact 954-357-7530.
