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. The application is open from March 5, 2021 to March 26, 2021. Funding will be distributed in mid 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.

Apply here for this new phase of COVID-19 relief funding, through which we are able to provide at least 120 artists with $1500 each. If you have any questions, or need support with your application, please contact COVID-19 Relief Coordinator Grace Nakahara.
