Resource List for Artist Grants

We want to be able to serve as a resource for all artists during these difficult times. For those of you working in visual, performing, literary, or any other arts-related field – whether as the maker, administrator, technician, or other role – there are options out there to help you.

The Willem de Kooning Foundation, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Teiger Foundation, and the Cy Twombly Foundation, as part of their respective COVID-19 relief efforts, have established an emergency relief grant program that will provide $1,250,000 in aid to Tri-State non-salaried workers in the visual arts who have experienced financial hardship from lack of income or opportunity as a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis. The program, initiated by The Willem de Kooning Foundation, will be administered in partnership with NYFA.
