Artist Grants Emergency Program

Emergency Grants for Artists

Disasters are unpredictable, and the impact on an artist’s life and work can be devastating. In response to the unprecedented scale of the COVID-19 crisis, we have increased and reallocated the Joan Mitchell Foundation's Emergency Grants budget to Artist Relief, a national, multidisciplinary initiative offering rapid, unrestricted funding of $5,000 to individual artists in all disciplines. No further applications will be accepted for our Emergency Grants for 2020; please instead apply directly to Artist Relief.
