Texas Folklife Launches COVID-19 Relief Fund

Wednesday, July 29, 2020   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Alexandra Sanchez

A group of Folk and Traditional Arts organizations and stakeholders, with the support of Texas Folklife, will award grants of $500 to community-based folk and traditional artists impacted by COVID-19. Grants are a one-time award made to individuals to assist with their financial well-being.

In response to the substantial economic and social impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Texas Folk and Traditional Artist COVID-19 Relief Fund will help offset the immediate and ongoing needs of the Texas folk and traditional arts community at large. While there are other COVID-19 relief efforts supporting artists and musicians, there are currently no emergency relief funds available specifically for Texas-based folk and traditional artists. This fund seeks to fill that void and provide emergency support for Texas’ traditional arts practitioners most in need.

For more information or to apply, including an application in Spanish, see Texas Folk and Traditional Artists COVID-19 Relief Fund.
