Miami-Dade County TV, Film and Entertainment Production Incentive Program

The TV, Film and Entertainment Production Incentive is a performance-based grant program that is based on Miami-Dade County-centric criteria. Each project’s eligibility will be determined on a case-by-case basis and each project/grant agreement will be required to go before the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) for individual approval. This process requires a timeframe of two or more months for approval. After the grant is approved, the rebate will be distributed after the production provides proof of their local spend, hires, etc. through a professional audit.

Please Read All of The Requirements of the Program Before Submitting an Application.
Incomplete or Erroneous Applications

This is a testy site. So if there is any question about local businesses, production can send me a vendor list and I will check it out. It helps to search in all caps.

Must Register as Miami-Dade County Vendor in order to receive the $100,000 grant check. It can take 2 months to be certified by the County so I would register ASAP.
