Welcome to the Louisiana Division of the Arts online grant application system, Louisiana Arts & Culture Grants Online (LACGO).

The arts are an essential and unique part of life in Louisiana to which each citizen has a right. The Louisiana Division of the Arts in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council is the catalyst for participation, education, development and promotion of excellence in the arts. It is the responsibility of the Division to support established arts institutions, nurture both emerging arts organizations and our overall cultural economy, assist individual artists, encourage the expansion of audiences and stimulate public participation in the arts in Louisiana.


All applicants must submit the application form electronically through LACGO by 4 pm on the deadline day, March 1, 2013 and must also submit a printed and signed signature page to the Louisiana Division of the Arts' Office in Baton Rouge, LA.
