Apply for a Grant

The Louisiana Decentralized Arts Fund Program (DAF), initiated in 1995, makes the arts available in every parish in the State of Louisiana by providing grant funding for artists, nonprofit organizations, community groups, and local government agencies.

The Louisiana Division of the Arts in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council is the catalyst for participation, education, development, and promotion of excellence in the arts by overseeing the DAF program and implementing plans of the Office of the Lieutenant Governor’s Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism.

The new application system: will allow grant applicants to submit DAF Project Assistance and DAF Organizational Support grant applications online. The MGO software provides convenient online services that will help to facilitate the grant application submittal and application review process.  Furthermore, the MGO software will allow grant applicants to conveniently track the progress of their application online.
