Arts Commission offering fourth round of relief grants
The Orange County Arts Commission is offering small relief grants to help artists who are struggling because of the COVID pandemic.
The primary purpose of the Orange County Arts Support Fund is to provide money for life’s essentials and continued creative development for individuals whose livelihoods have been drastically impacted by COVID-19. With limited funds to grant, we ask that applicants carefully consider their financial circumstances before applying to determine if these funds are absolutely essential.
If you have other sources of income and are making ends meet, then we ask that you please allow this fund to help those who are not so fortunate.
This grant may be used for essential expenses such as groceries, rent/mortgage, bill payments, and healthcare, as well as the purchase of essential supplies or services that are critical to your creative work.
This grant is not intended to be used for travel or the purchase of items not related to your creative work or life-sustaining essential expenses.
The ArtsCenter in Carrboro is serving as our fiscal agent for this initiative, meaning all payments will be issued by them via personal check. However, please note this is not a fundraising effort by or for The ArtsCenter.
