RAUSCHENBERG EMERGENCY GRANTS
The program provides one-time grants of up to $5,000 for unexpected medical emergencies.
New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is proud to partner with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation to administer a new emergency grant program called Rauschenberg Emergency Grants. This marks the first phase of a program that will be in the tradition of Change, Inc., a non-profit foundation established in 1970 by Robert Rauschenberg to assist professional artists of all disciplines in need of emergency medical aid.
The program will provide one-time grants of up to $5,000 for unexpected medical emergencies. The grants are available to visual and media artists and choreographers who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the United States, District of Columbia, or U.S. Territories. If you aren’t sure if your artistic discipline fits within these guidelines, please contact the grants administrator.
Please note: Rauschenberg Emergency Grants are not for lost wages. Visit NYFA’s Emergency Grants page for a regularly-updated list of emergency resources.
There is no deadline; applications will be accepted and reviewed by the panel on a monthly basis beginning in late May/early June 2020.
Please note: there is a set amount of funding allocated for these grants each year; once this amount has been awarded we cannot accept additional applications until more funds are made available. Our website will indicate when all funds have been granted.
