Guidelines of assistance
Craft and folk artists whose materials, studios, or capability to produce art have been impacted by an emergency circumstance can fill out the online application form for emergency funding and grants.
The Craft Emergency Relief Fund provides financial assistance up to $6,000, and no-interest loans up to $9,000, to eligible artists whose studios, homes, or access to artistic production have been lost. Emergency relief assistance includes grants, no-interest loans, booth fee waivers, and discounts on supplies and equipment. The “Get Ready” Grants encourage artists in craft disciplines to pursue emergency preparedness by providing funding for activities that can help safeguard their studios.
