The Louisiana Division of the Arts Decentralized Arts Funding Grant, initiated in 1994 and administered in cooperation with local arts agencies throughout the state, makes the arts available in all areas of the state by giving people in each parish the opportunity to develop arts programs that meet their local needs. The grant program allocates funds on a per-capita basis to all 64 parishes in the state.  These funds will be granted to applicant organizations in the parish which received the allocation.  Applicants compete only against other organizations and individuals within their parish. The Arts Council serves as a re-granting agency for funds provided by the Louisiana Division of the Arts.  The Arts Council funds projects and arts organizations in the following parishes through the Decentralized Arts Funding (DAF) program: Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, and Jefferson Davis.
