About the Programs
Arts in Education (AIE)
The PCA’s Arts in Education (AIE) Division fosters educational excellence through participation in the creative process in schools and community settings. The PCA provides funding for arts in education programming, collects and disseminates relevant information, and offers professional development. The AIE Partnership enables the PCA to work with and through regional partner organizations in order to expand the impact of arts learning across the state and leverage additional local resources. Partners administer artist residencies, provide technical assistance to and professional development for artists, educators, administrators, and parents. Learn more about the PCA’s AIE Division.
PA Partners in the Arts (PPA)
The PCA’s Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA) is the regional re-granting program. Regional Partner organizations re-grant state arts funds to support a wide variety of local and community arts projects and programs. Since PPA’s implementation in 1997, the PCA has been able to steadily expand the availability of state arts dollars to many new communities. Thousands of organizations, projects and programs have received funding. By providing local administration and technical support and a streamlined application process, PPA has created unprecedented access to state arts funding.Learn more about PPA Program Stream | Learn more about PPA Project Stream
