1. LOUISIANA DECENTRALIZED ARTS FUNDING (DAF) PROGRAM

The Louisiana Division of the Arts Decentralized Arts Funding Program provides a system for funding arts and cultural projects in every parish of the state.  Funds are provided to each parish on a per capita basis utilizing the most recent census figures.  As applicants compete only with other organizations in their parish, decisions about cultural priorities are made locally.
