COVID-19 Response & Recovery Resources

Artist Trust has announced a new phase of COVID-19 relief funding for Washington State artists, with $100,000 available to seed funding for a minimum of 100 artists at $1,000 each. The application for funding will open on March 5, 2021, with a deadline of March 26. Funding will be distributed in early April. Washington State artists of all disciplines who have been affected by COVID-19 financially and have not yet received funding from the Artist Trust COVID-19 Relief Fund are invited to apply, with priority given to individuals who are disproportionately affected by COVID-19, including artists from historically marginalized communities, BIPOC artists, artists who are immunocompromised, artists who identify as LGBTQ, artists with immigrant status, and artists living with or having disabilities. Applications will be reviewed by the Artist Trust program team using a scoring rubric developed through collaboration with local and national partners in artist relief funding.

Artist Trust offers several other opportunities for funding and we have updated our grants schedule for 2021. Visit our Grants page to learn more.
