HOUMA, LA - Louisiana Division of The Arts invites organizations or communities, including the Bayou Regional Arts Council 6-parish service region in supporting arts and culture programs to submit proposals for the Louisiana Project Grants. The application deadline has been extended to Sunday, September 5, 2021, at midnight due to Hurricane Ida. The grant period runs from October 1, 2021, to September 30, 2022.
The Louisiana Project Grants program has replaced the DAF (Decentralized Arts Funding) program. DAF procedures and processes have not changed since 1995. When it comes to this program, the Louisiana Division of the Arts has been listening to the voices from across the state and ensuring that the funds are used to support the arts and competitive, creative projects.
As a result, some changes are made as to the following:
• This Grant program will be called Louisiana Project Grants (LPG) and will fund project assistance for community-based arts projects only, as the name indicates.
• Revision of the program priorities to reflect our new focus and intent.
• Dollars will still be allocated and administered regionally, but parish boundaries will be eliminated.
Focusing on community needs and the impact that an amazing art project can have, this support expects to see innovation, new populations targeted, risks are taken, and collaboration with other parishes, organizations, and institutions.
Louisiana Project Grants are administered in collaboration by the Louisiana Division of the Arts (LDOA) and nine regional arts councils throughout the state. This program establishes a system for funding arts projects in all regions of the state by allowing artists, nonprofit arts organizations, nonprofit organizations, public and private schools, and local government agencies in each region to create art projects that meet their specific needs. The program's goal is to foster innovative arts projects that have a long-term impact in each of our state's regions.
