Artist Relief Grants

Artist Relief is an initiative organized by the Academy of American Poets, Artadia, Creative Capital, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, MAP Fund, National YoungArts Foundation and United States Artists — all small to mid-sized national arts grantmakers — that have come together in this unprecedented moment guided by the understanding that the wellbeing of artists has financial, professional, social and mental dimensions, and should be fostered with a holistic framework of support.

As such, Artist Relief will distribute $5,000 grants to artists facing dire financial emergencies due to COVID-19, serve as an ongoing informational resource and co-launch the COVID-19 Impact Survey for Artists and Creative Workers, designed by Americans for the Arts, to better identify and address the needs of artists moving forward.

You can find an online application – or make a donation – at artistrelief.org.
