The Idea Fund - Emergency Relief Grant 

The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has provided an opportunity for The Idea Fund, a regranting program administered by DiverseWorks, Aurora Picture Show and Project Row Houses, to support visual and multidisciplinary artists in the Greater Houston Area who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 60+ $1,000 grants will be awarded through an online application process. The Idea Fund - Emergency Relief Grant portal opens April 13, 2020; the deadline to apply for consideration is Monday, April 27, 2020, 11:59 PM.

The Idea Fund’s Emergency Relief Grant is conceived as an emergency grant to assist artists whose income has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including job cuts or furloughed employment; lost income from canceled exhibitions, performances, and lectures; and needed assistance with basic expenses such as food, rent, medical costs, and child care during this time.
