The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs launched a two-part tool kit in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic: the COVID-19 Financial Impact Tracker (CO-FIT) and the COVID-19 Survey of Impact on Miami-Dade County's Cultural Community (CO-SIC). The survey collects data on revenue losses, jobs affected and increased expenses attributable to COVID-19 on a monthly basis. The survey also includes questions regarding COVID-19 recovery support applied for or received.
COVID-19 Financial Impact Tracker (CO-FIT)
The CO-FIT is an easy-to-use, self-calculating financial tool to help nonprofit cultural organizations account for revenue losses, jobs affected and additional expenses attributable to COVID-19. Data collected through this customizable, monthly financial log can be used to fill out the CO-SIC survey each month. TIP: You can download a new copy of the CO-FIT Tracker for each month.
