East Bay artists and individuals working the arts and culture sector can apply for up to $2,000 in financial assistance tied to the pandemic and ongoing economic challenges. Guidelines and applications can be accessed here.
Applications will be accepted from Sept. 7 through Sept. 28 for the East Bay Relief Fund for Individuals in the Arts, which makes available $412,496 in grants. The Fund is a pooled effort led by Kenneth Rainin Foundation, with support from the Hellman Foundation, Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, Gerbode Foundation, and East Bay Community Foundation.
This third fund — aimed at supporting artists, teaching artists, culture bearers, and nonprofit arts workers who need financial help — will take the total distribution to over $1.5 million in three years.
