Project Stream


Apply annually for A chance to impact your community!

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. For-profit organizations are not eligible to apply. To see a list of all eligibility requirements and restrictions, click on the button below titled 2018-19 PPA Project Stream Guidelines.

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. To see a list of those grantees click here.

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.

NEW in 2018! The Project Stream grant application has moved and will now be completed entirely online. To apply one must create a log-in here, and then select the 2018-19 Project Stream application.

If you have questions about this grant opportunity please email PPA Coordinator, Zach Kleemeyer.
