New Nation-Wide Artist Relief Fund Established

To support artists during the COVID-19 crisis, a coalition of national arts grantmakers have come together to create an emergency initiative to offer financial and informational resources to artists across the United States.

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.

To be eligible for a relief grant, applicants must be:

  • Practicing artists able to demonstrate a sustained commitment to their work, careers, and a public audience;

  • Experiencing dire financial emergencies due to the COVID-19 pandemic;

  • 21 years of age or older;

  • Provide a W9 and Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)—we will collect this information after you’ve been notified of your selection;

  • Residing and working in the U.S. for the last two years;

  • Not a full-time employee, board member, director, officer, or immediate family member of any of the coalition partners;

  • Not previously awarded a relief grant from this fund.
