Broward County Commission Approves Nearly $5 Million for Cultural Grants

Amidst challenges, Broward maintains investment in the arts and culture sector

As part of the fiscal year 2021 budget hearing, the Broward County Board of County Commissioners approved the Cultural Division’s budget of $4,869,660 for grant programs, maintaining the previous year’s funding level.

This renewal reflects the Commissioners’ commitment to investing in Broward’s arts and culture sector at a time when funding is more necessary than ever.

The County Commissioners understand that arts and culture are critical for a healthy economy. With their support, the Cultural Division is committed to continued investment in the community’s growth and support of the arts and culture sector.

I am grateful to the Commissioners and to the entire Cultural Division team, who have worked tirelessly to sustain the cultural community in innovative and creative ways. We must ensure its continued viability.

To learn how we’ve worked to support the arts throughout the pandemic, I invite you to join me live online at our Annual Cultural Forum on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 4-5pm.

Broward’s artists and arts organizations have not only survived but have found creative ways to thrive and expand access and programing to our community during a time of great challenge.

We thank our Commissioners and Broward Cultural Council member, Vice-Mayor Geller for solidifying their vote of confidence in the future of Broward’s creative economy.
