The Arts Center Task Force has created the ACTF COVID-19 Artist Relief Fund to provide short-term relief in the form of unrestricted grants to Tri-Cities, Washington artists and organizations who have lost income related to the COVID-19 crisis. Our necessary efforts to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic by “Sheltering in Place” have had catastrophic effects on artists, arts and culture organizations in our community. It is our responsibility to preserve our cultural resources. 100% of all donations submitted through this fund will go to support local artists and arts groups.
