Rolling Artist Relief Grants thru June 2021

  • Tuesday, June 01, 2021

Artist Relief is open for applications. Artist Relief will make at least 100 grants per month from now through June to individual artists facing dire financial emergencies as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Artist Relief is resuming thanks to a generous lead gift from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation that was matched by the Lily Auchincloss Foundation, The Willem de Kooning Foundation, DeWitt Stern, a division of Risk Strategies Company, Helen Frankenthaler Foundation COVID-19 Effort, Imperfect Family Foundation, Kinkade Family Foundation, Carolee Schneemann Foundation, Lenore G. Tawney Foundation, and Teiger Foundation.

Artist Relief was 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 came together in an 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.

As such, Artist Relief distributed $5,000 grants to artists facing dire financial emergencies due to COVID-19; served as an ongoing informational resource; and co-launched the COVID-19 Impact Survey for Artists and Creative Workers, designed by Americans for the Arts,to better identify and address the needs of artists moving forward.
