Community Arts Grants Applications Now Open

Deadline to Apply: April 20, 2023

Applications for Community Arts Grants (CAG) are now open. The CAG program is funded by the City of New Orleans and administered by Arts New Orleans. This program supports a broad range of arts activities that take place in and impact the residents of Orleans Parish.

The CAG program has two grant categories:

1) New Orleans as Cultural Capital provides two-year operating support grants to nonprofit arts
organizations with 501(c)(3) status that carry out quality arts programming that impacts our citizens
and visitors.

2) More Joy provides one-year project grants for Grassroots Parading Traditions and similar activities.
The More Joy category helps to support projects usually done by New Orleans indigenous cultural
groups, for example, Black Masking Indians, Mardi Gras Indians, and Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs.

Arts New Orleans believes that all citizens should be able to participate in the arts and that the arts drive a vibrant and equitable community. We are proud of the broad range of arts and cultural activities supported by the Community Arts Grants Program made possible by the City of New Orleans.
