Culture Builds Florida Application now open for 2009-2010 Funding
Last week, the Division announced a revised application schedule for 2009-2010 grants. This funding structure is for the 2009-2010 fiscal year only. In the 2009-2010 fiscal year, the only legislative appropriation for organizations requesting funding is through the Cultural and Museum Grant Program. You may apply for up to $25,000 for seed funding or expansion funding through the Culture Builds Florida (CBF) program. Funding will be top-down at the full request amount until the appropriation is depleted.
All applications previously submitted for 2009-2010, will not be reviewed as appropriations were not provided. Applications to the Florida Arts Recovery, Underserved Arts Communities Assistance (UACAP), and Arts in Education programs will be reviewed as these programs are funded through federal funding.
The revised timeline for 2009-2010 includes these important dates:
May 18 – Guidelines available on the Culture Builds Florida program page. Application available on OASIS.
June 18 – Application Deadline
August 24-28 – Panel Meetings Scheduled
September TBD – Grants recommended at September Florida Arts Council meeting
October 1 – Grant Period Starts
If you submitted a CBF application for the February deadline:
You may revise your application in the OASIS system;
You will have the opportunity to re-use your support materials;
You do not have to revise your application, you may re-submit it in its present form. You must log in to the OASIS system and resubmit your application. Current CBF applicants will receive another email through the OASIS system detailing their options.
If you have not submitted a CBF application:
You may apply for 2009-2010 funds through the CBF program;
You may submit ONE application to the CBF program in either the seed funding OR the expansion funding category;
You will be able to access and revise your other Division grant application(s) should you wish to use any of the information in those applications;
Existing applications, with the exception of UACAP, Arts in Education, and Culture Builds Florida, will not be reviewed. This includes all roll-over applications.
Current Cultural Facilities applicants will hear from program manager Don Blancett regarding the Cultural Facilities Program.
