The City of San José Coronavirus Relief Fund: Artists is a partnership between the City of San José Office of Cultural Affairs and the Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI). The City of San José Coronavirus Relief Fund: Artists (San José Fund) is distributing $208,000 in the form of grants up to $2,000 to help mitigate COVID-19 related financial impacts suffered by individual artists who are the backbone to the City’s diversity and vibrancy of cultural identity and expression. San José Fund is a reimbursement-based fund made possible by federal funding resulting from the United States CARES Act, which was allocated by the State of California to the City of San José.
The San José Fund is a response to the financial impact on professional artists caused by the COVID-19 economic shutdown. The large-scale shutdown has been needed to slow the spread of COVID-19, and it has continued to put the entire arts sector on hold. Artists’ ability to earn income to pay necessary expenses has been disrupted, and their ability to survive financially is threatened.
Given the widespread financial consequences of the COVID-19 economic shutdown, the San José Fund welcomes additional support. Please contact Laura Poppiti, CCI Grants Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help with a tax-deductible contribution.

Applications will be accepted in English only. Applications must be submitted online through CCI’s GO Smart™ system. All new applicants MUST register for an account with the GO Smart™ system BEFORE they will be able to access the grant application.
