The East Bay Relief Fund for Individuals in the Arts is a pooled fund led by Kenneth Rainin Foundation with support from the Walter & Elise Haas Fund. The Fund makes available $337,500 to help the region’s artists, teaching artists, culture bearers, and nonprofit arts workers who comprise the various and diverse cultural communities of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) is administering this Fund.
The Fund is for artists, teaching artists, culture bearers, and nonprofit arts workers who need financial help as a result of this federally recognized qualified disaster. Grants will be distributed to reflect the diversity of the East Bay—Alameda and Contra Costa Counties—including those who are of historically underserved communities and whose marginalized status have made the economic impacts of COVID-19 more difficult financially on them.
Applicants can apply for up to $2,000 and we ask that you only apply if you have or are anticipating immediate needs. This is because we want to reserve as much of the Relief Fund as possible for those facing significant financial threats. The Fund will prioritize the financial needs of individuals who are of cultural communities that are historically underserved and are particularly financially vulnerable—Black, Indigenous, Latinx, foreign-born immigrants, trans, and people with disabilities—and distribute the funds throughout the two-county East Bay region.
Please contact Laura Poppiti, CCI Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to support artists with a tax-deductible contribution.
Applications will be accepted beginning November 16 at 9 a.m. PT until December 8 at 12 p.m. (Noon) PT. Completed applications must be submitted by the deadline—no exceptions will be made. Additionally, applications will be accepted online ONLY through CCI’s Submittable platform. All applicants MUST create an account in Submittable before they will be able to access the grant application.
