The Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA), in coordination with the Washington State Department of Commerce, is now accepting applications for CARES Relief funding grants to be distributed to arts and cultural organizations. $1.5 million dollars in CARES Relief Grants will be available to arts and culture organizations in Washington State.
Applications will be accepted between September 28 to October 23, 2020.
Nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, including tribal organizations, and fiscally sponsored groups impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic are eligible to apply for a grant of up to $10,000. Organizations must have current federal tax-exempt status or be sponsored by a qualifying non-profit that has arts, culture, and/or heritage in their mission statement. Grants will be processed and paid by the end of December.
Applications will be evaluated under three main criteria: Financial need, Arts and Cultural Programming, and Communities Served. To ensure geographic distribution, applications will be evaluated by regional panels serving the northwest, southwest, central, and eastern regions of the state.
Applications must be completed online at Zoomgrants.com
