Finally, some good news: This morning the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs announced that 156 Iowa artists and 14 Iowa nonprofit arts organizations will receive grants in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak. The first round of grants from the newly created Iowa Arts and Culture Emergency Relief Fund totaled $191,000.
And more good news: Round Two is now open. We’re accepting applications from Iowa arts nonprofits through next Friday, May 1. These grants range from $1,000 to $20,000, funded by $442,700 from the National Endowment for the Arts through the CARES Act.
Also, keep in mind:
And I can’t say it enough: Don’t hesitate to contact our staff with any questions or concerns. We're here to help.
