In response to the current pandemic, artists may request up to $500 in assistance. There are no deadlines.The new, expanded application guidelines now include the following situations:Financial losses due to cancelled events* caused by COVID-19, including performances in all performing arts, disciplines, readings, and speaking opportunities Financial losses of teaching artists* who could not teach during this time because of cancelled classes and school closures due to COVID-19 Losses due to unforeseen emergencies such as flood, fire, accident, destruction of artwork, and theft, unrelated to COVID 19. EFFA does not consider requests for medical, capital improvement, project, or programming costs or requests from businesses. We encourage artists to have medical, business, and property insurance and will assist artists in finding the appropriate resources that they need.
