The project must be an exhibition, performance, or other arts activity. The cultural organization must have operated in its discipline(s) in Broward County for a minimum of one (1) uninterrupted year following incorporation, and provided services in Broward County for a minimum of six (6) months following the date of incorporation.

Matching Funds:  Not required. However, the applicant must submit a budget for the past year that demonstrates revenue in excess of the amount of the award requested.

Award Size:  On a funds available basis, the program will award up to $5,000 per project for not-for-profit cultural organizations. Funding may be used for reimbursable project expenses.

Note:  A not- for-profit organization may only be awarded one (1) project incentive award per fiscal year, but the total amount shall not exceed $5,000 in Creative Cultural Project funding during any County fiscal year, subject to the availability of County funds.
