We believe that artists and creatives are at the heart of Westchester’s cultural community. Their work sustains creative projects and fuels our cities and towns with vibrancy. We know that with the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and implementation of the social restriction measures to contain the spread of the virus, artists in all disciplines have lost critical opportunities to earn income and support their well-being. With this in mind, ArtsWestchester has issued a call to action, seeking donations from our community towards an Artist Relief fund. While we cannot forecast the total amount available through the fund, we will continue collecting donations indefinitely and distributing grants to artists as contributions come in. The number of artists we can support is directly dependent on how much funding is raised. Artists can help this effort by sharing the GoFundMe campaign on their social platforms. 

For link to GoFundMe page CLICK HERE.

ArtsWestchester will award grants of $500 to individual Westchester artists who have suffered a loss of work due to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Applications will be accepted beginning on May 1, 2020, on a rolling basis. Submissions will be reviewed by ArtsWestchester Staff and the Grants Committee of ArtsWestchester’s Board of Directors. 

For questions, email No calls please. 


These funds are available for individual professional artists who live or maintain a studio in Westchester County, New York. Artists must be at least 18 years old and be able to demonstrate a realized loss or anticipated loss of income due to COVID-19. Applicants will be required to submit a completed W9 (CLICK HERE).

ArtsWestchester teaching artists, past or current grantees, and artists who have received public art commissions through ArtsWestchester are all eligible to apply. 

Artists will be required to supply proof or residence, or proof of studio space in Westchester, New York along with a W9. 

Artist Relief Fund awards are a one-time grant. Artists who receive a grant through this program may not apply for additional funding in this category. If more funds are made available, ArtsWestchester may reopen the application to past awardees.
