Grants to Florida nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for projects and activities that improve the quality of life for local residents. Funding is intended to support large-scale projects, including renovations, new construction, and other major capital initiatives that enhance services in Broward County.

The proposal submitted should align with at least one of the the following 10 Issues that Matter:

  • Animal Welfare
  • Dignity in Aging
  • Art of Community
  • Eco Broward
  • BFit
  • Economic Independence
  • Broward Pride
  • School is Cool
  • Cancel Cancer
  • Youth Work

For additional information see Page 4 of the Guidelines in Supporting Documents, below.

A capital project is defined as building construction, expansion, or renovation; the purchase of major equipment that is capitalized and has a life of many years; and/or operational enhancements such as significant infrastructure or technological upgrades. Project costs would also include the required soft costs associated with ensuring the project is completed.

Capital projects are the infrastructure required to expand programs and services or create new programs that advance an organizations’ core mission and whose effectiveness and need in the community have been demonstrated.  

Proposals should demonstrate how the community will be better served by both the capital project as well as the new/improved services it will provide. Compelling relevance and importance of the difference the organization seeks to make are paramount. Organizations must demonstrate they can support and sustain the expanded operational costs associated with the capital program.
