Grants of $800 to Rhode Island individual artists for financial assistance in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to support local artists who have experienced financial losses due to the pandemic. Grants are unrestricted and designed to support immediate basic needs, such as rent/mortgage, utilities, food, insurance, and medical care.
This fund is open to those who have lost income related to their artistic practice due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Artistic practice is broadly defined and includes teaching artists, arts administrators, and other arts and culture workers. Acceptable losses include, but are not limited to, those that have resulted from an inability to: teach in-person classes or workshops; participate in paid residencies; perform, curate, or otherwise participate in paid gigs; display work in art galleries or museum shows; sell work at craft fairs; offer services as a teaching artist; etc. Please note that grant awards are based on immediate financial need, and not on total loss of income.
