Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a consortium of funders have created a national emergency relief fund for artists.
CERF+ — the Artists Safety Net is pleased to announce the launch of a COVID-19 Relief Grant program to provide financial assistance to artists working in craft disciplines who are facing dire circumstances from the COVID-19 crisis.
As part of CERF+’s broader COVID-19 crisis response strategies, this special program will provide one-time $1,000 grants to meet urgent food, housing, and/or health insecurities. The grants will be awarded in two cycles: the deadline for the first round will be July 29, and the second will be September 9. Priority will be given to eligible artists who have traditionally been underserved by the grantmaking community including people of color and folk and traditional artists.
