Special Considerations:
- If the applicant is an identifiable component of an umbrella organization (e.g. university, cultural organization), the umbrella organization may not also be an applicant in this grant cycle.
- If the program is a collaborative effort among two or more organizations, the lead organization must submit the application, meet the eligibility requirements and be the funding recipient.
- FAN will not fund any production/exhibit that has been presented by the applicant organization in Miami-Dade within 5 years prior to the current FAN funding cycle unless the program is substantially different from prior presentations.
- If the proposed program begins before or extends beyond the funding period of July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023, only that portion that occurs during the funding period will be funded.
