Since 1995, DAF procedures and processes haven’t changed. The Louisiana Division Of The Arts has been listening to the voices throughout the state when it comes to this program, and we’ve got to be sure that the funds are really being utilized to support the arts and competitive, creative projects.

So last year LDOA made some changes:

This grant program is now simply called Louisiana Project Grants (LPG) and as the name indicates, it solely funds project assistance for community based arts projects. LDOA updated the program priorities to reflect a renewed focus and intent. Dollars will still be allocated and administered regionally, but parish boundaries have been eliminated. We are honing in on community needs and the impact that an incredibly awesome arts project can have. We want to see creativity, we want to see you shake it up, target new populations, take risks and collaborate with other parishes, organizations and institutions.

We can’t wait to see the impact your projects will have throughout our state.
