Artist Relief Fund:

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;
  • Able to receive taxable income in the U.S. (e.g. citizen, green card holder, and/or permanent resident who can provide a W9 and SSN or ITIN);
  • 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.


Americans for the Arts Impact Surveys for Artists and Organizations

Economic Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Arts and Cultural Organizations: https://surveys.americansforthearts.org/s3/CoronavirusImpactSurvey

COVID-19 Impact Survey for Artists and Creative Workers: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5532991/6539d78e3593

The COVID-19 Impact Survey for Artists and Creative Workers is designed to capture financial and creative impact of COVID-19 on creative workers, highlight the resiliency and generosity of the creative sector, and make sure that the 5 million creative workers in the U.S. are supported and heard during this ongoing crisis and the eventual recovery.


CARES Act Information and Resources:

According to SBA.gov, “The SBA is currently unable to accept new applications for the Paycheck Protection Program based on available appropriations funding.” The funding ran out within two weeks, but we still encourage you to work on applications in the event that the funding pot is replenished and new applications are being accepted once again.

A few quick facts:
– Only past or current NEA grantees are eligible to apply.
– Maximum amount is $50,000.
– Must only be used for payroll and facilities expenses.
– First deadline is April 22nd using Grants.gov
– NEA grant portal deadline is May 4th
– Take note of the information in their FAQs about SAM.gov registration extension.
– 40% of their $75 million appropriation will be distributed through State arts agencies to comply with longtime policy of the agency.
– If you fail to receive a CARES Act emergency grant directly through the NEA, you may be able to apply to the California Arts Council for that money (guidelines and amounts are expected to be announced by CAC soon).
