The Florida Division of Cultural Affairs web site states A local arts agency (LAA) is defined as an umbrella agency that serves its county or counties arts and cultural constituencies. The Local Arts Agency Program is designed to provide general support for activities conducted by a local arts agency such as:

  1. Cultural assessment and planning
  2. Services to arts and cultural organizations, individual artists, and the diverse communities the local arts agency represents
  3. Promotion of arts and cultural events or opportunities
  4. Collaborations that benefit the community at large and provide greater quality and access to arts and cultural programs and opportunities
  5. Programs, projects, or initiatives such as arts in education, lifelong learning, art in public places, marketing and community outreach."

The Manatee County Cultural Alliance conducts all five of these activities.
