Be a part of the budget
County budget hearings will be on September 3rd and 17th at the Stephen P. Clark Center starting at 5:01 p.m. These meetings are open to the public and I strongly urge all our residents to attend the hearings and speak before the Commission about their priorities and concerns.
Community meetings will be held throughout Miami-Dade during the month of August. Residents are encouraged to attend and learn more about the budget process. Members of the community will have the opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions so that resources are allocated based on public participation and information.
2015 Impact Grant winners
The District 8 Impact Grant is awarded to community based organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to advocacy, civic engagement, and service. This year, we awarded 13 organizations small grants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. These organizations provide direct services and have also expanded their reach to impact policy.
While each grant recipient presented a unique project or proposed to tackle a unique issue, they all had to strictly adhere to the overall advocacy and civic engagement component of the District 8 Impact Grant program. The awards totaled $48,000.
