The deadline to submit applications for FY 2014 grants through the Arts Council of New Orleans is April 24, 2013 (required online submission) and April 25, 2013 (required hard copy submission).
Operating Support and Project Assistance grants are being offered in the April 2013 deadline through two programs the Arts Council administers: the Louisiana Decentralized Arts Funding Program (for Orleans, Jefferson and Plaquemines Parishes) and the Community Arts Grants Program (for Orleans Parish only). Both online and hard copy application submissions are required.
Please read the grant program guidelines carefully - application information such as grants offered and allowable request amounts has changed. The guidelines outline the steps and requirements involved in submitting an application. The application forms detail the hard copy submission instructions: how to compile the original application and the copy sets, how many copy sets are needed, and how to submit required and optional attachments. Free grant workshops will be offered and are strongly recommended for guidance on preparing a competitive application. Webinars will also be conducted and consultations with Grants staff may be scheduled.
Applicants should access grant application forms as soon as possible - forms are available only through the Online Granting System. Grant-seekers must log on to the system in order to view the applications. For instructions on how to use the online application system, please refer to the Online Granting System Applicant User Manual before starting an application.
Below are links to the FY 2014 grant application materials. Included are links to the FY 2014 grant guidelines for both grant programs; the application forms for both programs via the Online Granting System; the grant workshop, webinar, and technical assistance information; and the Online Granting System Applicant User Manual.
