Grant Opportunity for Maine Artists
"The Maine Artist Relief Fund will award grants of $500 to individual artists who live in Maine and whose creative practices and incomes are being adversely impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19). With events of all types being cancelled to reduce the spread of COVID-19, people who make income partially or fully through artist gigs, exhibits, events and freelance work are losing critical opportunities to support their well-being in our state.
The Maine Artist Relief Fund will open for applications on April 1, 2020, for artists who have lost or anticipate losing income. The Maine Artist Relief Fund will be open through the rest of our fiscal year, ending June 30, 2020. We welcome applications from all artists living in Maine, but will prioritize lower income artists as determined by the application."
