Florida Division of Cultural Affairs Grant Fast Track Project
Deadline: March 14th 2017
The Fast Track Project Grant Program is designed to provide expedited access to funds supporting small organizations through arts and cultural projects. This program is not intended to fund the general programming activities of your organization. Instead, this program supports projects including, but not limited to, artist residencies, performances, or exhibitions.
There are two (2) application deadlines yearly for this program. Applicants may only receive one grant per fiscal year from this program.
Deadline: March 14
Funding Period: July 1 through December 31
Deadline: September 12
Funding Period: January 1 through June 30
After reading through the guidelines, use our online application system at apply.florida-arts.org to submit applications for General Program Support, Specific Cultural Projects, Fast Track, and Cultural Facilities. To apply for Cultural Endowment grants, visit the program page for application instructions. Guidelines and applications for the Individual Artist Funding Program will be available soon.
Eligible applications are reviewed by panelists who are practicing artists and qualified professionals in their cultural discipline. Applications are scored during panel meetings, which are a public process usually conducted by teleconference.
Panel meeting results are reported to the Florida Council on Arts and Culture who then send ranked lists to the Florida Secretary of State for review and approval. The approved lists are then added to the Department of State’s Legislative Budget Request and submitted to the Florida Legislature.
Funding decisions for the Division’s grant programs are made during the Legislative Session. Consider following these advocacy tips; you may be able to increase opportunities for funding your grant.
