Call for Grant Panelists!

The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs invites members of the community to apply to serve as a grant panelist. We are seeking individuals interested in volunteering their time to review applications for cultural grants funding from Miami-Dade County, through the Cultural Affairs Council and administered by the Department of Cultural Affairs. Each year the Department of Cultural Affairs relies on the services of many volunteer panelists, who review and evaluate grant applications and make funding recommendations. Currently all grant panels are held on online. Panelists play a key role and help maintain a fair and open process and assist in the continuous development of Miami-Dade County’s artistic and cultural communities by bringing their expertise to the panel review process. Panels are comprised of artists, arts-related professionals, educators, community members, business leaders and others with current or prior active involvement in the arts. Many panelists are arts professionals who are qualified by their activities, training, skills, and/or experience in one or more art forms; however, we equally welcome arts enthusiasts, advocates, and supporters to apply.

Click here for more information and to fill out the Grant Panelist Nomination Form online.

For more information about the Department of Cultural Affairs and its programs, please visit www.miamidadearts.org. Grant funding for FY 2024-2025 is contingent upon the approval of Miami-Dade County’s FY 2024-2025 budget by the Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
