Arist Relief

Artist Relief is an initiative organized by the Academy of American Poets, Artadia, Creative Capital, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, MAP Fund, National YoungArts Foundation, and United States Artists—all small to mid-sized national arts grantmakers—that have come together in this unprecedented moment guided by the understanding that the wellbeing of artists has financial, professional, social, and mental dimensions, and should be fostered with a holistic framework of support.

Fund will distribute $5,000 grants to artists facing dire financial emergencies due to COVID-19; serve as an ongoing informational resource. First round of funding closes 4/23/2020 but there will be ongoing funding cycles.
