COVID-19 Emergency Support Grants for Performing Artists are for individual artists across all performing arts disciplines who are struggling to have their basic needs (shelter, food, and medical) met due to loss of artistic income from COVID-19.
COVID-19 Emergency Support Grants for Performing Artists are made possible by the Robert & Clarita Whitney Fund in partnership with the Fund for the Arts as well as Fund for the Arts donors who have generously diverted their gifts to support immediate needs of the sector. Those donors include:
LG&E/KU Foundation | Mary & Bob Rounsavall | Lift A Life Foundation | GE Appliances, a Haier Company | David Jones Jr. & Mary Gwen Wheeler
We anticipate demand for COVID-19 Emergency Support Grants for Performing Artists will exceed funds available.
Application deadline is rolling. Awards will be made until funds are expended.
