Arts in Community Grant 

Artists and arts organizations may apply for a grant to support arts and/or culture-related projects in Lafayette. Projects should have some community benefit or organizational benefit to the individuals it serves. Projects that fund the artistic practice of one individual will not be funded unless there is a strong case made for the public community benefit.
