Survived Sandy but Still Struggling?
|New York Foundation for the Arts continues to offer support to artists impacted by Superstorm Sandy. Eligible artists can be working in any discipline, but must reside in one of the five boroughs of New York City and meet a maximum income threshold. If you are an artist who is still suffering the impact of Hurricane Sandy, you can find complete guidelines and answers to Frequently Asked Questions at relieffund.nyfa.org. Funds are limited, so artists are urged to apply by September 15th for priority review. |
