IAC > Regional Arts Partners > Regional Arts Partner Purpose & Benefits Regional Arts Partner Purpose & Benefits

Purpose and Benefits
The Regional Arts Partnership (RAP) purpose and design is structured to improve and increase service delivery by providing access to grant funding and other statewide services on the regional level.  The RAP regional system is responsive to the needs of each region and provides more direct delivery of grants, services to communities, and provides citizens a more direct role in the allocation of state resources. 

The IAC works with its regional partners in this service delivery and continues to assess opportunities for additional programs and services based upon needs, effectiveness of similar services, and available resources.

RAP Mission
In collaboration with the IAC, the RAP exists to promote and expand participation in the arts in Indiana. It provides broad local access to arts services and funding opportunities and provides services that include, but are not limited to, grantsmaking and information and referral.
