CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT GRANTS
FY2017-2018 Cultural Grants:
The City of Coral Gables invites nonprofit 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), and cultural organizations to attend a Cultural Grants Workshop/Public Meeting with the City’s Cultural Development Board and staff. The workshop will be for the purpose of explaining the City of Coral Gables Cultural Grant process for Fiscal Year 2017-2018.
ALL FY2017-2018 Applicants must attend.
The workshop will be held:
Thursday, August 31, 2017

Organizations must have staff, board member, or volunteer representation present. It is highly recommended to have the person who will be writing the grant attend the workshop.
It is the organization's responsibility to sign-in to ensure that this requirement is met. Organizations failing to be in attendance, and recorded as such, will automatically be disqualified from consideration for Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Cultural Grant funding.
