Event Category 

This emergency recovery fund is for the purpose of providing economic relief to Iowa’s arts and culture industry. The funding will be administered by the Iowa Arts Council, on behalf of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, through the Iowa Arts & Culture Emergency Relief Fund.

The deadline for applying for a grant is 11:59 pm December 11. Eligible Iowa arts and cultural organizations, businesses and individual artists whose normal operations have been interrupted due to the pandemic and ongoing public health emergency may apply for grant funding.

Individual artists, live music venues, and nonprofit arts and cultural organizations are all in urgent need of financial assistance to sustain operations, preserve jobs, and offset revenue losses and necessary expenses incurred in the course of responding to the public health emergency.  See the Iowa Arts Emergency Relief Fund web page for application procedures, guidelines, and other information.
