Posted by: Alexandra Sanchez

CERF+ is launching the COVID-19 Relief Grant program to provide financial assistance to professional 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 application opens July 8 and the deadline for the first round will be July 29, the second will be September 9th. Priority will be given to eligible artists facing the most severe financial pressures, and CERF+ will ensure that funds are dispersed throughout the country. Priority will be given to eligible artists who have traditionally been underserved by the grant-making community including people of color and folk and traditional artists.
