Emergency Grants & Resources for Artists

In response to the unprecedented scale of the COVID-19 crisis, we have increased and reallocated the Joan Mitchell Foundation's 2020 Emergency Grants budget to Artist Relief, a national initiative providing relief grants of $5,000 to individual artists across disciplines, and Creative Response, a New Orleans-based relief effort. Applications for Artist Relief and and Creative Response are currently closed.

We recommend Americans for the Arts Coronavirus Resource and Response Center for a list of current resources.
