The Rauschenberg Dancer Emergency Grants program provides one-time grants of up to $5,000 to professional dancers in need in the U.S., Tribal Nations, District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories who have a dire financial emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dancers must demonstrate an urgent and critical need for emergency support in order to apply. Dire financial emergencies include the lack of imminent endangerment of essentials such as housing, medicine/healthcare, utilities, and food.
The first cycle will open on November 8, 2021 and close on January 7, 2022. Funds may be requested for emergency expenses for up to a three-month period between September 1, 2021 and April 30, 2022.
It is administered by New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), and funded by Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. Please click here for details.
