A LAA is a local nonprofit organization officially designated by a local government. It can also be an arts and culture department of a municipal, county or tribal government. Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Departments are examples. LAAs provide service, participation, and/or advocacy-based activities within a defined geographic area. They are non-discipline-specific. Activities provided by LAAs have a community-wide reach. They serve to enrich quality of life by increasing public access to the arts. Applicants must provide documentation of official designation as an LAA. They must be established by ordinance or legislation. They must have at least a one-year history as an agency, department, or unit of city, county, tribal or state government.
