Updated: Apr 24, 2020

Our friends at the Dance Foundation in Homewood, Alabama have assembled several resources specifically for arts and culture nonprofits as well as for individual artists. We're passing them along for your benefit.

Arts Sector Relief and Resources

The coronavirus has had a devastating impact on America's arts sector: Americans for the Arts research demonstrates that nonprofit arts organizations have suffered losses of $4.5 billion in revenue. Below are a few important resources to help arts organizations weather this storm.

Coronavirus Resource and Response Center: On this web tool you'll find news, information on relief funds and financial assistance, preparation advice, and two important surveys:

Relief for Individual Artists

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.
