NJ State Council on the Arts To Hold Free Technical Assistance Webinar Regarding Coronavirus Relief Fund Grant On June 2nd

(TRENTON, NJ) -- On Wednesday, June 2nd, the The New Jersey State Council on the Arts will host a live presentation, detailing the eligibility and application process for the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) program.

WHAT IS THE CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUND (CRF) PROGRAM 

Per legislative directive, the Arts Council will distribute $7.5 million in federal funding to support nonprofit arts organizations in need. These funds are a portion of federal block grant funds allocated to the State from the federal “Coronavirus Relief Fund” established pursuant to the federal “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act),” Pub.L.116-136.

The CRF Grant Program funds will be awarded by the Arts Council as one-time, non-matching grants to eligible nonprofit, arts-missioned organizations. Eligibility information is provided in the grant guidelines.
