The City Artist Corps Grants program was launched in June 2021 by The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), and intends to award more than than 3,000 New York City-based artists a one-time $5,000 grant to engage the public with artist activities across New York City’s five boroughs. These grants are intended to support NYC-based working artists who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Artists can use this grant to create new work or phase of a work, or restage preexisting creative activities across any discipline. This program is presented by The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), as well as Queen Theatre. Members of the public can participate in the City Artist Corps Grants programming by following the hashtag #CityArtistCorps on social media.
