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 celebrates its 9th 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, contact 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. Twenty-four 2013-2014 PPA Projects are reaching a wide range of constituents, from young children to senior citizens, and these activities engage audiences through exhibitions, concerts, workshops, and performances.

To apply for the 2014-2015 Project Stream, grant applicants are encouraged to attend one of the Arts Council's planning workshops to review the best practices for completing the application. For online support, visit the PPA Project Stream Prezi. The Prezi was developed by the PCA and requires Adobe Flash Player and has optional audio.
