Artist Relief will distribute $5,000 grants to artists facing dire financial emergencies due to COVID-19; serve as an ongoing informational resource; and co-launch 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. Applicants must be practicing artists able to demonstrate a sustained commitment to their work, careers, and a public audience, experiencing dire financial emergencies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Must be 21 years of age or older and able to receive taxable income in the U.S. (e.g. citizen, green card holder, and/or permanent resident who can provide a W9 and SSN or ITIN). Must be residing and working in the U.S. for the last two years, and not a full-time employee, board member, director, officer, or immediate family member of any of the coalition partners.
