CERF+ the Artists Safety Net Offers COVID-19 Relief Grant Program for Artists – First Round Deadline July 29, 2020

June 29, 2020

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.

“CERF+ recognizes that artists, who are so vital to the health of our communities, have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic with the sudden loss of income because of canceled shows, residencies, exhibitions, teaching opportunities, and other income-generating activities,” notes CERF+ Executive Director, Cornelia Carey. “We acknowledge that this is a small program relative to the significant need, and we look forward to rolling out additional programs to assist with recovery.”

Cycle 1: Accepting applications July 8 – 29, 2020
Cycle 2: Accepting applications Aug. 19 – Sept. 9, 2020
