Introduction:Louisiana creative professionals have many arts grants available to bring their projects to life. Local, regional, state and international agencies are eager to support the arts industry and offer several funding opportunities, some of which are listed below.

  • 01

    Arts & Humanities Council of SWLA

    If your arts project will take place in Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron or Jefferson Davis Parish (also known as Region 5), head on over to the Arts & Humanities Council of SWLA (Southwest Louisiana). Based in the historic Central School, they steward three Decentralized Arts Funding (DAF) grants: Calcasieu Parish Police Jury (CPPJ), Lake Charles Partnership and Tourism Marketing Initiative.

    The April DAF workshops may be required in order to apply for these grants. Most applicants tend to ask the same questions. Thus, it saves time giving instructions and answers in a group setting.

    Applicants should also attend the board meetings in which applications are reviewed and selected. Applicants are not to speak with board members at these meetings, and should keep any other conversations to a minimum. Their presence is taken into consideration when weighing the applications.

  • 02

    Louisiana Division of the Arts

    In addition to DAF, the Louisiana Division of the Arts has four regular grant programs. The Office of Cultural Development site lists statewide grants for Artist Career Advancement, Regional Development Agency Performance Plan, Special Initiatives and Stabilization. Artists should also join the site's mailing list to be notified of additional economic opportunities, such as Calls for Artists for the Percent for Art Program.

    New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation

    The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation reinvests Jazz fest proceeds as grants to arts and educational programs supporting their cultural mission. They run a tight ship, with applications released in May 2014 and due back in July. Interested artists and organizations in any discipline should sign up for their newsletter to be notified of details. Click on the link below for more information.

  • 04

    French American Jazz Exchange

    The French American Jazz Exchange awards grants up to $25,000 for projects celebrating the shared passion for jazz in France and America. Performances may take place in either or both countries within the stated sixteen months and should involve collaboration between French and American artists, one of them being the lead partner.

    Shreveport Regional Arts Council

    Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC) administers DAF, as well as four City of Shreveport REGRANTS. REGRANT programs include fellowships, mini-grants, organization support and project assistance awards. Grant applications and guidelines are available at the SRAC site.

Final Thoughts

Louisiana arts grants applicants should be prepared to carefully read guidelines and applications, attend relevant meetings and meet deadlines. DAF grants are issued throughout the state via regional arts councils. Larger metropolitan areas will generally have more funding opportunities, so be sure to check their city sites. Artists and organizations should always sign up for site newsletters to keep up to date on grant announcements and other important news.
