Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $500 and in-kind support to Massachusetts individual artists in eligible locations to mitigate financial losses due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Grantees' art work will also be publicized on digital platforms. Eligible applicants include artists, actors, musicians, writers, and other creative professionals living in Barnstable County.

Focused on lost income, the Cape Cod Arts Relief Fund will provide relief in the form of grants to artists who live, work, create, and/or perform on Cape Cod. 

AFCC will support artists in two ways:

  1. The fund will provide grants to support full- or part-time professional artists who have lost income used to sustain their creative practice due to the COVID-19 crisis.
  2. AFCC will invest in the Cape-wide visibility of all artists who receive funding by featuring their websites and their work on Arts Cape Cod and the AFCC’s website and social media platforms.
