The application process was managed by the Arizona Commission on the Arts, an agency of the State of Arizona.</p> <p>Open to residents of Arizona whose primary source of income is in artistic production, teaching artist residencies, cultural events, or contract work with nonprofit arts organizations, the online application opened on Saturday, April 4, 2020, and closed later that same day due to the high volume of submissions.</p> <p>The 235 relief grants announced today represent 45% of the initial applicant pool. First-round recipients hail from cities and towns across Arizona, with 25% from rural/remote communities and 75% from urban metros. 46% of recipients identify as individuals of color. Recipients range in age from 18 to 75+, and collectively they specialize in dozens of creative disciplines. </p> <p>After being considered in accordance with the stated commitments for the fund, applications were entered into a process for randomized selection. Value and need are accepted as fundamental conditions for this program; applications are not ranked according to subjective merit or persuasiveness.</p> <p>Partners on the Emergency Relief Fund for Arizona Artists and Arts Professionals are still actively fundraising to support applicants who were not awarded relief grants in the first round. Individuals and organizations are invited to join in the effort and contribute to the fund at <a href="https://azarts.gov/grant/emergency-relief-fund" target="_blank">https://azarts.gov/grant/emergency-relief-fund​</a>. ​<br><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/artsNewsarts-and-cultureArts & Arts Professional Emergency Relief FundA+C@phxarts_cultureartist grants, COVID-19, emergency fundingMatt Heil602-697-7954602-534-0108matthew.heil@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/5/Matt_Heil.jpgphxarts_culture
