Newark Arts to Provide Emergency Grants for Artists Affected by COVID-19

(NEWARK, NJ) -- Individual artists that reside in Newark, New Jersey and whose livelihood has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic are encouraged to apply for a Newark Arts Emergency Grant. 

The Newark Arts Emergency Grant, made possible via funding from the New Jersey Arts and Culture Recovery Fund, is a need-based mini-grant in the amount of $1,000.00. The grant is intended to provide financial support to individual artists as they continue to create music, dance, theatre, film, visual and literary art projects.

“Newark artists are resilient. We hope these emergency funds provide support to help them get back on their feet as we continue to be challenged by the pandemic. We’re grateful to the New Jersey Arts and Culture Recovery Fund for providing the resources for this initiative,” said Jeremy Johnson, Executive Director, Newark Arts. 

The application can be accessed at newarkarts.org/emergencyfund from March 22, 2021 through April 9, 2021 at 11:59pm. 

Additional support for Newark Arts is provided by Prudential Foundation, Victoria Foundation, NJ CARES Act Funding via NJSCA, the City of Newark, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, NJ State Council on the Arts, Momentum Fund of United Philanthropy Forum, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Resilience Fund, Turrell Fund, Bank of America, TD Bank, Verizon, M&T Bank, PSEG, Hanini Group, New Jersey Economic Development Authority, New Jersey Redevelopment Authority and generous institutions and individuals.
