This annual grant provides a system for funding arts and cultural projects in Calcasieu parish only. As applicants compete only with other organizations in Calcasieu Parish, decisions about cultural priorities are made locally.

The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury disburses the funds to the Arts Council, which in turn re-grants those dollars to non-profit organizations, organizations or individuals with fiscal agents, or schools in Calcasieu Parish for specific arts projects.
