Cultural Grants Workshop



The City of Coral Gables invites nonprofit 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4) cultural organizations to attend the annual Cultural Grants Workshop / Public Meeting with the City’s Cultural Development Board and staff. The workshop is for the purpose of explaining the grant process and answer any questions. ALL applicants must attend.

The workshop is held annually:
The last Thursday in August

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.
