Development Services has partnered with the Arts Council for Long Beach to deliver phase three of the Artist COVID Relief Grant. 

This grant program is for individual artists across disciplines who are struggling to have their basic needs (shelter, food, and medical) met due to loss of artistic income from COVID-19. Applicants will be asked to provide a short narrative that addresses how COVID-19 has impacted their ability to generate income from their art form and halted their artistic expression. Artists must meet the following criteria to apply:

  • Be a professional, working Long Beach artist (age 18 or older)
  • Be a member of the Arts Council registry
  • Meet federal low-income thresholds and be able to demonstrate with documentation or certification

 Applications are open from Wednesday, March 10, 2021, at noon until March 31, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. or until funds are depleted.
