Deadline: NACF Native Arts Emergency Support Project
June 25, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 11:59 pmFree
In response to the crisis and hardships brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (NACF) has launched the Native Arts Emergency Support Project (NAESP), aimed at providing support for our Native artists whose livelihoods and families have been impacted by COVID-19. This is the second phase of the NAESP, and we are accepting applications from local Portland (OR) metro area artists (full eligibility criteria below). In the first phase NACF was able to provide support to 70 of its previous awardees through two funding cycles.
Monies for the NAESP have been reallocated and repurposed from NACF funds as designated by the board of directors and staff leadership. NACF continues to actively recruit partners to help contribute to the fund.
NACF’s goal is to make the process as easy to navigate as possible, so that support can be quickly and efficiently distributed.
More than likely, NACF will be unable to provide support for all requests or the full dollar amount of all requests. The amount provided will be based on the availability of support, the number of requests under review, and the number of requests we anticipate in the near future. These parameters, including the timeline, may change in response to the situation and organizational needs. All such changes will be communicated to applicants.
