Have last-minute opportunities to present their work to the public when there is limited time to seek other funding
Incur unexpected expenses for projects close to completion
FCA and a panel of established artists review requests monthly, primarily granting to experimental artists who demonstrate last-minute need and who have few sources of financial support. Emergency Grants is the only active, multi-disciplinary program in the United States that offers immediate assistance of this kind to artists.
Grants range in amount from $200 to $2,000. We recommend that artists apply 6-8 weeks before they require funding.
Additionally, we have a small budget expressly reserved for travel expenses for projects in Central and Eastern Europe.
