The Craft Emergency Relief Fund increased the amount of its emergency financial assistance grants and loans for eligible craft artists.
The fund’s emergency grants now provide up to $5,000 in immediate help to eligible craft artists after career-threatening emergencies. Its no-interest emergency recovery loans now provide up to $8,500 to help craft artists re-establish, improve or possibly expand the artist’s business after an emergency.
“Thanks to the fantastic response of our generous donors to the campaign for [the fund’s] future, we are very pleased to be able to increase the amounts of both our grants and no-interest loans. These funds provide such critical support to artists recovering and rebuilding after disasters,” executive director Cornelia Carey said in a statement.
