What does AWARE mean?
Artistic Works Addressing and Rethinking Equity Grants Initiative is an exceptional, one-time investment in Miami-Dade’s cultural community that will provide several grants to programs in development that explore or reflect issues of equity within or across artistic disciplines.
May I apply for both the AWARE Grants Initiative and the FAN Annual Grant Award?
YES. The AWARE Grants Initiative is a special one-time additional funding opportunity separate from FAN’s annual grant process. Eligible applicants may apply for both grant opportunities. However, if the AWARE final proposal is chosen to be funded, the annual grant application may not include the same program.
Do I apply in a specific category?
No. There is no requirement to specify a category in order to apply for an AWARE grant.
Is funding 1-year or multiyear?
All AWARE grant awards may run until December 31, 2023.
Who is reviewing the applications and selecting the grantees?
Grant applications will be reviewed by a panel of FAN members.
May my organization submit multiple applications?
No. Organizations may submit only one proposal. Universities, however, may submit up to two applications, each from a different department.
Organizations that have been FAN grant awardees and fulfill the current criteria are invited to submit AWARE Grants Initiative preliminary proposal.
