Grants of up to $35,000 to Florida nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and businesses in eligible areas to promote local tourism. First-time applicants must attend a grant workshop, and returning applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to increase the appeal of Miami-Dade County as a tourist destination by sponsoring tourist-oriented sports events, cultural and special events (visual and performing arts, including theater, concerts, recitals, opera, dance, art exhibitions, and festivals), and television origination projects.
The TDC will provide priority attention to grant requests for activities and events that serve as major tourism generators in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year (July - September).
Applicants may choose to submit applications that assume in-person public programs and events and/or online “virtual” public activities. The Department will continue to assess the feasibility of presenting public programs in traditional venues and performing spaces and if necessary, will continue to exercise appropriate contractual flexibility to allow grantees the presentation of virtual programs and other program delivery strategies to fulfill public presentation requirements.
