FCA Emergency Grants COVID-19 Fund

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The FCA Emergency Grants COVID-19 Fund panel meets monthly to review requests. The panel is comprised of established practicing artists. All panelists have an active or former teaching practice and are familiar with emerging work and contemporary art practices. Most panelists have also served on other peer review processes. To prevent lobbying by applicants we do not disclose panelists' identities.

Panelists consider the urgent nature of each request and evaluate the submitted work samples for their mission fit.

Receipt of your application will be acknowledged via an automated email. Please be aware that communication from FCA may unintentionally go to your Spam folder.

Please do not contact FCA about the status of your application. All applicants will receive notification of the panel's decision following the monthly panel meeting. Payment to awardees is processed within one week.

FCA has a small Programs team that is responsible for reviewing all requests. We appreciate applicants refraining from calling with phone inquiries.
