Grants ranging from $5,000 to $30,000 to Miami-Dade County, Florida nonprofit organizations to strengthen the quality of life in the Greater Miami area. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal before applying. Funding may be used for costs directly related to program implementation, such as salaries of program staff or consultants, outreach, marketing, supplies, events or local travel. Proposals may include reasonable indirect costs.

The funds available through the Community Grants Program have been aligned with the following three areas:

Opportunity - Greater Miami continues to surge forward as a rapidly growing, global city. As our city prospers, we must develop pathways to opportunity so all residents can benefit equitably and thrive. Opportunity grants will focus on enabling residents who face greater barriers to success to develop their abilities and talents and use them to overcome hardships and achieve their potential and aspirations. Areas include:

- Well-being of Children and Youth ($583,000)
- Affordability and Housing ($215,000)
- Healthy Lifestyles ($100,000)

Resiliency ($200,000) - To be more resilient our community must both address threats to our physical environment and build civic engagement in shaping policy, planning for and recovering from adversity. Resiliency grants will focus on strengthening Greater Miami’s ability to adapt to our unique environmental, growth and socio-economic challenges.

Creativity ($100,000) - Greater Miami is booming with arts and culture offerings that are shaping our identity and vitality. The Creativity grants focus on harnessing the power of arts and culture to build community.
