The California Relief Fund for Artists and Cultural Practitioners was initiated by the California Arts Council, and is now open to provide financial relief to artists!
The Fund will be distributed to reflect the cultural and geographic diversity of the state of California—including those whose artistic practice is deeply rooted in historically marginalized communities.
For the purpose of this relief fund, these prioritized communities include African, American Indian and Alaska Native, Arab, Asian and Asian American, Black and African American, Disabled, Immigrant, Indigenous and Indigena, Latinx, LGBTQIA2S+, MENASA, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander, Refugee, and Women.
Additionally, those who are low-income, have difficulty obtaining or retaining sources of
income, live in rural communities, or undocumented are encourage to apply.
$1,953,000 in funds are being awarded throughout California.
Applications open from noon on April 25 until 5:00pm on May 20, 2022
