Chapter 4 details the distribution of project funds in terms of primary and secondary recipients, distribution by art form in each state, types of activity assisted, initiation and location of projects, audiences, and matching funds. Chapter 5 discusses arts agencies' relationships with departments of education, other state agencies, and local government. Chapter 6 outlines management practices and organizational structure.
