The Willem de Kooning Foundation, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Teiger Foundation, and The Cy Twombly Foundation, as part of their respective COVID-19 relief efforts, have established an emergency relief grant program that will provide $1,250,000 in aid to Tri-State non-salaried workers in the visual arts who have experienced financial hardship from lack of income or opportunity as a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis. 

The Tri-State Relief Fund to Support Non-Salaried Workers in the Visual Arts, administered by New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), will distribute one-time unrestricted cash grants of $2,000 to freelance, contract, or non-salaried archivists, art handlers, artist/photographer’s assistants, cataloguers, database specialists, digital assets specialists, image scanners/digitizers, and registrars. 

This emergency relief fund program will offer three rounds of applications: May 5-6, May 19-20, and June 2-3. Please click here to view the full online announcement.
