Local Authority arts funding index

Local Authorities (LAs) often have multiple grants available over short periods alongside extra help like guidance, advice and links to other contacts in the area. Although we cover some LA grants in our Funding Finder tool, we've also put together the tables below as a quick and easy way of finding the relevant page on your Local Authority's website for all they have to offer in the way of help.

If you come across a LA funding webpage, please do let us know and we'll add it to the tables.
