Grants of up to $30,000 to Florida nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to benefit local residents. Applicants must submit a proposal prior to applying. Funding is intended to strengthen local communities in a wide range of areas. Eligible programs will serve the Greater Miami Area.

The grants provide support to organizations and initiatives that improve local quality of life in three focus areas: 

  • Opportunity – enabling residents who face barriers to the development of their abilities and talents to achieve their potential
    • Well-being of Children and Youth
    • Affordability and Housing
    • Inclusion of People with Diverse Abilities
    • Healthy Lifestyles
  • Resiliency – strengthening Greater Miami’s ability to adapt to our unique environmental, growth and socio-economic challenges; and 
  • Creativity – harnessing the power of arts and culture to build community. 

Funds may be used for costs directly related to implementing a program, such as salaries of program staff or consultants, outreach, marketing, supplies, events or local travel. Proposals may include reasonable indirect costs.
