Learn about this unique grant program offered by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts. Information sessions are free and open to the public.

Emergency Grants are available by application to artists working in all disciplines who have sudden opportunities or unexpected expenses associated with presenting work to the public. A half-hour presentation on the program will be followed by an open Q&A session.

Foundation for Contemporary Arts was founded in 1963 by Jasper Johns and John Cage with the mission of encouraging innovation, experimentation and potential in the arts. Emergency Grants is made possible by the generous support of individuals and foundations and, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
