Grants Management

The Grants Management Division maximizes the amount of funding that the City of Miami Beach receives by actively seeking and applying for grants and funding opportunities. The Grants Office, in coordination with City Departments, obtains federal, state, local and foundation grant funds that support the City’s Strategic Plan.  The City of Miami Beach has a centralized grant process, which ensures a higher standard of coordination between City Departments, and approval at the City Manager and Commission level.  The Grants Office provides leadership and direction throughout the lifecycle of the grant funded project, from identification of funds and application to the funding agency, to closeout and project completion.

The Office ensures compliance with federal and state guidelines and regulations and monitors functions such as financial, budgeting, program implementation, performance and reporting administration. Grants Management staff serve as liaison between the funding agencies and City department.  Grants are obtained for many City uses, including capital construction, general operating funds, program/project funding, start-up funds, technical assistance and planning funding. The Grants Management Office also assists with the City’s Legislative process, the Building Better Communities General Obligation Fund Program and the State Revolving Loan Program.
