Before applying, we ask that applicants self-evaluate whether they are experiencing dire financial emergencies during this time and make space for those most urgently in need.
Due to the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we define “dire financial emergencies” as the lack or imminent endangerment of essentials such as housing, medicine, childcare, and food. We are aware that each artist’s needs differ, so ask that you thoroughly and accurately describe your situation. Applicants should demonstrate a pressing and critical need for emergency support to be considered for this grant.
We also highly recommend reviewing our FAQ for questions related to eligibility, application, selection process, and disbursement.
