Artists invited to apply for COVID relief grants

The application is now live for the Artist Resilience Program, a second round of relief funding for Oregon artists offered by the Oregon Arts Commission in partnership with the Oregon Community Foundation and the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. 

The partnership will invest another $1.5 million in support for artists’ recovery from the pandemic. 

Awards generally range from $1,000 to $5,000 and are determined by a peer review panel. A geographic distribution model ensures that applicants from across Oregon are supported. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Feb. 10. Guidelines are posted on the Arts Commission website. The program supports professional artists who have experienced loss of revenue of $1,000 or more between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2021. Artists from underserved communities, including (but not limited to) rural communities and communities of color, as well as artists with disabilities, are especially encouraged to apply.
