Application Workshop

The Cultural Division's grants program, under the direction of Director Phil Dunlap, is undergoing a transformation to create more equitable and accessible opportunities that support the development of arts and culture in Broward.


During this transformation, deadlines are being adjusted so this application workshop will no longer take place at this time. Please feel free to contact Director Phil Dunlap for more information, if needed.
