Proposal Reviews

Broward County Cultural Council/ Broward Cultural Division Grant Proposal Review Instructions

Welcome to the on-line grants panel review process. We thank you, in advance, for your service as a panel member for this program. Grant panelists are responsible for reviewing the assigned eligible applications for funding through the grant program, scoring the applications consistent with review criteria, and making funding recommendations to the Broward Cultural Council. Grant review panels are at the heart of the Cultural Division’s grant decision-making process, and your expertise and knowledge are vital. You have been invited to participate in a review of grant application submissions to the Broward Cultural Division.
