Emergency Response of the Arts Community – Update

David Johnston


On the timely and generous response of the arts community post-Sandy, we wanted to post two funding updates. First, the NYFA Emergency Relief Fund.  Administered by New York Foundation for the Arts and supported by the Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Lambent Foundations, the Emergency Relief Fund is open to artists of all disciplines residing in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York. Most grants will range from $1,000 and $5,000. The deadline is rolling, and grants will be issued every two weeks. Click here for details and application information.

Second is the NYC Dance Response Fund. Administered by Dance/NYC and established by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, grants of $1,000 to $5,000 are available to “New York City-based nonprofits and fiscally sponsored projects of The Field, Fractured Atlas, New York Foundation for the Arts, New York Live Arts, and Pentacle focused on the creation or performance of dance.”  Applications are now being accepted on a first-come first-served basis until funds are exhausted.

Again, we thank the foundations and our colleagues at NYFA and Dance/NYC for their generosity and dedication to the arts community.
