CERF+, a Vermont-based nonprofit that provides help to craft artists in the form of training, advocacy, and financial relief, announces a third round of its Covid-19 relief grant program.
The program will provide $1,000 grants to artists working in craft disciplines who are facing dire circumstances such as food, housing, and medical insecurities as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
“Many artists in this country - especially those who are black, indigenous, or people of color - are self-employed, living on low or episodic income,” Cornelia Carey, executive director of CERF+, said in a statement. “It’s a highly vulnerable segment of the economy. They never could have foreseen or prepared for such a devastating loss of income, and our goal is to help ease some of this financial strain so they can get back on their feet back to creating.”
Applications for the third round will remain open from Jan. 13 to Feb. 3, 2021.
