Commission on Cultural Affairs

Commission on Cultural Affairs

The mission of the St. Tammany Commission on Cultural Affairs is to enrich the lives of the citizens of St. Tammany Parish by nurturing, sustaining, and enhancing the arts.

The St. Tammany Commission on Cultural Affairs has many programs and initiatives available to assist arts organizations and non-profit agencies presenting arts programs, so as to foster development of the arts in St. Tammany Parish. We offer programs and initiatives in grants, public art, arts marketing, leadership and organization development, cultural programs, cultural planning and technical assistance. 


Louisiana Project Grants (LPG) fund project assistance for community-based arts projects that have meaningful community involvement and collaboration with diversity, equity, and inclusion as a priority. Formerly the Decentralized Arts Fund (DAF), these grants seek to support creativity and innovation throughout Region 9 which consists of St. Tammany and St. Bernard Parish. The application is open NOW! Application deadline is August 31, 2021.
