ACNV Emergency Fund Grants NOW OPEN!

Applications for the ACNV Emergency Artist Fund are NOW OPEN!

A total of $40,000 in funds will be distributed to those located in Napa County who qualify. 

A $30,000 Emergency Artist Fund will be opened to all individuals— and small nonprofits (with an annual budget of $100,000 or less) working in any arts discipline. These Economic Loss Funds are available to assist with financial losses due to the pandemic, such as canceled programming, missed fundraising events, lost contracts or gigs, employee impact, and lost wages. 

A $10,000 Emergency Education Fund will be opened to all county schools that have experienced economic loss due to cancellation of performances, shows, or fundraisers.

The funding is provided by ACNV with generous support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Arts Education Alliance Fund, and the Napa Valley Arts Council Emergency Response Fund.
