PENNSYLVANIA PARTNERS IN THE ARTS
The PENNSYLVANIA COUNCIL ON THE ARTS and the LEHIGH VALLEY ARTS COUNCIL

Count Me InPennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) is a state funding initiative of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) designed to widen the circle of funding opportunities in support of arts activities throughout the Commonwealth by reaching every county in the state.

The Lehigh Valley Arts Council is entering its 10th year as the PCA’s regional partner of the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts by regranting state funds to applicants in Carbon, Lehigh and Northampton counties. The grant application and award process is locally administered by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council staff, who convene advisory panels from the local cultural community to review the applications according to guidelines provided by the PCA.

For eligibility information about PPA grant programs, details about the grant application process, or interest in future consideration to serve as a grants review panelist, contact Marilyn J. Roberts, PPA Coordinator, at ppa@lvartscouncil.org.

PROJECT STREAM. The Project Stream is open to individual artists and community groups who apply for support of an arts-related project with strong public impact. PPA Projects in our 2013-2014 project cycle are reaching a wide range of constituents, from young children to senior citizens, and engaging audiences through exhibitions, concerts, films, workshops, and performances. The 2014-2015 grants cycle has resulted in 28 PPA Projects to take place between September 1, 2014 and August 31, 2015 in our three counties. Join us for Arts Count 2014 to celebrate!
