June 20, 2018 was the deadline for making application to the 2018–19 Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) Project Stream.

The PPA Project Stream grant opportunity is very competitive and offers up to $2,500 to eligible individuals, community groups, and nonprofit organizations to conduct community focused arts activities.

Through a partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council has administered the PPA program for the last dozen years across the Lehigh, Northampton, and Carbon counties.

The amount of funding available in the 2018-19 granting season remains the same as last year – $39,709. There were 26 grants awarded last year.

In May 2018 the Arts Council held four grant writing workshops, free to the public, designed to help prepare those interested in applying for a Project Stream grant. Each year in May, 3-4 workshops are held in various locations in the Valley. Aspiring applicants are highly encouraged to attend one of the grant writing workshops.

If you have questions about this grant opportunity please email Community Engagement Manager, Zach Kleemeyer.
