Broward Cultural Division will offer an application workshop for the Regional Investment Program (RINV) and Cultural Institution Program (CINP) on Tuesday, September 26 at 2PM in the Main Library, Bienes Ceremonial Room, 6th floor, 100 S. Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. The workshop is designed for ongoing applicants and prospective applicants to the two programs. Workshop participants will be instructed on how to submit an online application.
The purpose of the Regional Investment Program is to assist eligible South Florida-based, not-for-profit cultural organizations that have been operational in their cultural disciplines for a minimum of three years in Broward County. Funding may be used to support the reimbursable program expenses associated with the presentation and/or production of a regular season of exhibitions, programs, events or performances open to the general public in Broward County.
An organization must have a 501 (c) (3) status with the Internal Revenue Service, and documented yearly Broward revenue of at least $40,000 to be eligible for funding. Organizations such as Seraphic Fire, City Theatre and Fantasy Theatre Factory have received funding through this program.
The purpose of the Cultural Institution Program is to assist eligible Broward-based, not-for-profit cultural organizations with an annual operating budget of at least $1 million in meeting program expenses associated with the presentation and/or production of a regular season of exhibitions, programs, events or performances open to the general public in Broward County.
Applicants for the CINP must have a 10-year uninterrupted history of providing services in Broward County in their established cultural disciplines. Organizations such as Broward County Film Society and Symphony of the Americas and Bonnet House Inc. have received funding through this program.
For both the Regional Investment and Cultural Institution programs, the application deadline is November 15, 2017 on, or before, 11:59PM for fiscal year 2019 funding. Only organizations designated by the Broward Cultural Council, as either a Regional Investment, or a Cultural Institution, organization are eligible to apply. There is no fee for the workshop.
