What is the PPA?
Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) is a regionalized funding program of the PCA. A total of seventeen local PPA Partners serve all 67 counties in Pennsylvania by re-granting funds to support a wide variety of local and community arts activities. Since the implementation of the PPA in 1997, the PCA has been able to steadily expand the availability of support to many new communities. By providing local administration, technical support and a streamlined application process, PPA has created unprecedented access to state arts funding.

The PPA goals include:
*Expanding constituent access to the arts by (a) making arts programs available to communities that may have been under-served in the past by state arts funding and (b) supporting a wide variety of local and community arts activities;
*Encouraging and supporting local decision-making in the re-granting of state arts dollars;
*Increasing awareness of and advocacy for government support and funding of the arts at the local and state levels; and
*Enabling the PCA to provide increased assistance to its broad constituency throughout the state.

I thought the state has a serious budget deficit? Never like to see the arts suffer, but.....
