The deadline to submit applications for FY2015 grants through the Arts Council of New Orleans' Online Granting System is before midnight on May 15, 2014. Grants are available for arts activities to take place in Assumption, Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptiste and Terrebonne Parishes between October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015 through the Louisiana Decentralized Arts Funding Program. Grants are also available for arts activities to take place in Orleans Parish during the 2015 calender year through the Community Arts Grants Program.
Grant workshops outlining program requirements and giving tips on how to submit a competitive application will be held in each parish in which grants are provided. Three webinars, one for Decentralized grants/Houma region, one for Decentralized grants/Greater New Orleans region, and one for the Community Arts Grants Program will be available on our website under Grants - Webinars beginning March 17, 2014.
Please read the guidelines carefully and refer to the Online Granting System Applicant User Manual before starting an application. The Online Granting System Applicant User Manual will instruct you on how to use the online system and complete the online application - we recommend that you print it out. You should also print PDFs of the application forms (you are interested in completing) to consider questions before completing them.
This is the first year that the Arts Council of New Orleans is accepting grant applications through its online system and NOT requiring copies of applications. Applications must be signed electronically.
