Funding Arts Broward (FAB), a non-profit volunteer-based arts organization committed to preserving and cultivating the arts in Broward County, has opened its grant applications for 2022 funding. Local nonprofit arts and organizations are encouraged to apply, online, for one of the three-tiered program-specific category grants awarding up to $15,000 at fundingartsbroward.org/grants. For the first time, FAB is also offering Education Grants dedicated to art appreciation and skill acquisition for grades K-12. Eligible organizations may apply for both a Visual and Performing Arts Grant and an Education Grant. The deadline to apply to be considered for 2022 funding is January 22, 2021. “By supporting visual and performing arts organizations, our goal is to fund creative and innovative performances, productions, and exhibitions that will stimulate the minds and capture the imaginations of our community’s diverse audiences,” said Ed Hashek, president of FAB. “We’re excited to announce the addition of an Education Grants tier to nurture and inspire future generations of multidisciplinary artists.”
FAB 2022 grants will be awarded in amounts and categories as follows:
- Organizations with an annual budget over $1 million may be awarded a FAB 2022 Visual and Performing Arts Grant for $5000 to $15000.
- Organizations with an annual budget under $1 million may be awarded a FAB 2022 Visual and Performing Arts Grant for $5000 to $10000.

Earlier this year, FAB awarded 2021 grants ranging from $2,500 – $14,500 to 37 recipient organizations, totaling $300,000, bringing its monetary disbursement to date up to $3.6 million.
