Emergency Relief Funds for Artists Affected by Hurricane Sandy

“After the Storm” by Yolanda Frederikse

NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) has established an emergency relief fund for artists living in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy.  Artists working in any discipline are eligible to receive these funds to cover any damages sustained during the storm.  Damages are broadly defined and include, but are not limited to: damage to physical work; damage to homes/studios/other facilities; loss of equipment or supplies; loss of income, and reimbursement for cancelled performances/appearances/engagements.

You can read more about this fund (and a separate fund for affected arts organizations) as well as find an application, here.  Interested in donating to this fund?  You can do that, here.
