Arts and Culture Coronavirus Relief Program
The Phoenix City Council approved using $2.6 million in federal Coronavirus Relief Funding to help artists, along with nonprofit arts and culture organizations, hurting financially because of the global health emergency.
The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture administered a program that offered:
grants to individual artists support working artists, teaching artists, and other artist-based contract workers that have experienced canceled events and residencies or terminated contracts because of the COVID-19 pandemic; and
emergency relief grants to arts and cultural nonprofits that lost earned and contributed revenue because of Coronavirus.
The City of Phoenix was also awarded $250,000 in regranting CARES Act funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Office of Arts and Culture made 13 awards of between $12,500 and $25,000 to Phoenix-based arts and culture nonprofit organizations, with budgets under $1 million to fill, rehire, or maintain a part-time or full-time position from being cut due to the Coronavirus crisis.
