Our response during the global pandemic.

Emergency Relief Grants

The Vermont Covid-19 Cultural Relief Grant Program is a partnership between Vermont Humanities and the Vermont Arts Council to provide rapid-response funding to arts and humanities organizations facing financial hardship as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Funding for this program is provided primarily from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020.

We are working together to maximize the impact of relief funding for Vermont’s arts and humanities organizations. We are committed to equitable grantmaking and will consider geographic diversity and the ability to reach underrepresented communities in our funding decisions.

The application period for Cultural Relief Grants closed May 31. Notifications were sent by June 30.
