Pennsylvania Partners In The Arts Project Stream Application 2015-2016

Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) provides state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. The LEHIGH VALLEY ARTS COUNCIL administers these grants in Lehigh, Northampton, and Carbon County on behalf of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) to support a wide variety of local and community arts activities.

The PPA 2015-2016 Project Stream deadline is June 22, 2015. Grants awarded will provide up to $2,500 to eligible individuals, community groups, and non-profit organizations to conduct arts projects which have a significant public component. The grant application and award process is locally administered by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council staff, who then convene advisory panels from the local cultural community to review the applications according to PCA guidelines.

To encourage participation in the application process, Lehigh Valley Arts Council hosts free planning workshops for anyone who is planning to submit an application. New and returning applicants have found these sessions critical to their success in meeting the demands of a compelling, competitive proposal. Artists, grant writers, and volunteers will have the opportunity to review PCA’s eligibility rules; detailed criteria, narrative and budget requirements; and digital work samples that make a successful application.

To register for one of these 2015 Project Stream workshops sponsored by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council, email Marilyn Roberts at Include your organization and/or artist name, preferred email and phone contact information, and a brief description of the project you are considering. You will be sent confirmation of your workshop date, location details, and links to the application materials.
