The purpose of the Lake Charles Partnership Grant Program is to provide funding for arts and cultural projects and organizations in the city of Lake Charles area.

Funded annually by the city of Lake Charles, applicants compete only with other organizations in the city of Lake Charles area, so decisions about cultural priorities are made locally.

***VERY IMPORTANT***  When you are filling in your forms, PLEASE pay attention and DO NOT allow anything to shift to the next page.  EVERYTHING on each page MUST remain on that page.  The Arts Council reserves the right to refuse all applications, along with their copies, should these directions not be followed which means you would have to go back and redo your application and make new copies.  Please be very observant!!!  ALSO, please use the Grantee Checklist to make sure you have ALL the required documents you need BEFORE you turn in your Grant Application.  We do not want to have to disqualify any applications due to missing documents.
