Grant Overview

The Artist Relief Program is administered by the Oregon Arts Commission in partnership with Oregon Community Foundation and the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. The Artist Relief Program 2020 application is closed. We anticipate another round of the program in late fall/early winter 2021, but details will not be available until confirmed.

The Artist Relief Program provides relief funding to Oregon artists who have experienced financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic due to cancellations of exhibitions, performances, rehearsals or other activities with a stipend, events, teaching opportunities, book signings, or other professional presentation opportunities.

The 2020 program supported professional artists who have experienced or anticipate experiencing loss of revenue of $1,000 or more between March 1 and December 31, 2020. Awards ranged from $1,000 to $5,000.
