Judge Perez Drive, Chalmette; and at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the St. Tammany Parish Council Chambers, 21490 Koop Drive, Mandeville.

The 2015-16 Decentralized Arts Funding program provides artists, nonprofit organizations, community groups and local government agencies with grants in the areas of organizational support and project assistance. All projects must occur between Oct. 1, 2015, and Sept. 30, 2016, and applicants may apply for only one grant.
