The PAA ArtFUND is part of the Wisconsin Arts Board Regranting Program, which combines funds from the State of Wisconsin with funds raised locally by the PAA. In partnership with the Wisconsin Arts Board since 1994, the PAA ArtFUND has distributed over $500,000 to local artists and arts organizations.

The PAA ArtFUND is the only granting program in Door and Northeast Kewaunee Counties that specifically funds the arts, including individual artists.
