Grants | Division of the Arts

The Louisiana Division of the Arts statewide grant programs provide key investments for the creation of art and the creation of and participation in arts programs and arts projects. 

Louisiana Project Grants

We partner with 9 Regional Arts Councils throughout the state to administer this program which provides a system for funding arts projects in each region of the state that meet local needs.

General Operating Support

This program supports nonprofit 501(c)3 arts organizations that help to create, present and preserve the various unique arts resources that make up Louisiana by providing general operating support.

Grant Panels

To strive for an evaluation of grant applications founded on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility as well as knowledge and best practices, the Division of the Arts is committed to a system of peer-panel review.
