Florida's arts funding has fallen off a cliff, Stuart News Opinion 4/21/19 (pdf)


FUND THE A LIST is working to restore legislative funding for Arts and Culture in Florida.

Each Year...

The Florida Council on Arts and Culture advisory council meticulously reviews grant applications for funding from cultural programs throughout the state of Florida and creates ranked lists for each of the four grant categories:

  • Cultural and Museum Support Grants
  • Cultural Facilities Grants
  • Culture Builds Florida Grants
  • Cultural Endowment Program

The 'Fund the A List' campaign was created to encourage the legislature to fund these lists. Each program that is placed on the Florida Council onArts and Culture list is throughly reviewed and should be given top priority for funding.
