Broward County Approves Cultural Grants Budget
Broward’s artists and arts organizations have not only survived, but have found creative ways to thrive and expand access and programing to our community during a time of great challenge.
As part of the fiscal year 2021 budget hearing, the Broward County Board of County Commissioners approved the Cultural Division’s budget of $4,869,660 for grant programs, maintaining the previous year’s funding level.
This renewal reflects the Commissioners’ commitment to investing in Broward’s arts and culture sector at a time when funding is more necessary than ever. The County Commissioners understand that arts and culture are critical for a healthy economy. With their support, the Cultural Division is committed to continued investment in the community’s growth and support of the arts and culture sector.
"I am grateful to the Commissioners and to the entire Cultural Division team, who have worked tirelessly to sustain the cultural community in innovative and creative ways. We must ensure its continued viability," says Phillip Dunla, The Director at Broward Cultural Division.
