Hello Cultural Organizations,
The Florida Division of Cultural Affairs has drafted a plan for distributing our portion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. The plan is still pending approval by the NEA, but we want to share the major details with you.
Please note that the details below are still pending approval and are provided for your information only.
Applicants can request up to $25,000 for full or partial salary support of one or more positions. The positions must be critical to the artistic mission of the organization and be in jeopardy of elimination, already eliminated, or vacant as a result of the current economic climate.
Development positions are not eligible for funding under NEA guidelines.
This is a one-time, non-recurring opportunity.
Applicants must be a Florida organization that:
has been awarded a grant from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs in the last 4 years (fiscal year 2005-2006 or later) and
is a public entity or a not-for-profit, tax exempt corporation
governed by a county, municipality, school district, community college, college, university, or a state government agency.
not-for-profit, tax exempt corporation
incorporated or authorized as a not-for-profit corporation, in good standing, pursuant to Chapter 617, Florida Statutes and designated as a tax-exempt organization as defined in section 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended.
Exception: Zoos and aquariums are not eligible to apply in accordance with section 1604 of Division A of the Recovery Act. Organizations currently in non-compliance with the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs may not apply.
There will be a very short turnaround time on this grant and it will be highly competitive. The full application and guidelines should be available by March 31st on the Division web site http://www.florida-arts.org. The tentative deadline for application submission will be April 13th. We will keep you informed as new information becomes available and guidelines are finalized.
Please plan accordingly.
