Grants of up to $25,000 to Florida individuals, nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations, groups, and government entities to create, improve, or activate public spaces in Miami-Dade County. Applicants must submit their idea prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support ideas that make public spaces more safe, fun, and easier to use.
There are four categories in this year's Challenge: walking, biking, streets and sidewalks, and public transit.
The Foundation gives priority to projects that:
- Create, activate or improve how residents move around the community
- Provide access to public spaces where little or no access existed before
- Improve usability of existing public spaces
- Show potential to benefit a broad range of residents, especially in neighborhoods with limited public spaces
- Have a solid execution strategy and plan to increase awareness about how public spaces can enhance communities and enrich the quality of life for nearby residents
Funds may be used for costs directly related to implementing a project, such as permitting, materials, supplies, outreach, events, marketing, staff or consultants.
