 IMPORTANT MESSAGE: CERF+ Emergency Relief Program on Hold

CERF+ has been overwhelmed by the number of requests for our Emergency Relief assistance due to the onslaught of natural disasters that occurred in 2017. As a result, our disaster relief fund has been depleted and we are not currently accepting applications as of 5/18/18.

We’re assessing this program as we raise money to restore our fund. Updates on the program’s status will be available on our website. If you would like to be notified of program updates, please complete this form. You can visit our Studio Protector: The Artists Guide to Emergencies for resources on relief and recovery.

The information below is for informational purposes while the program is on hold. No applications are being accepted at this time.


Have you experienced a recent, serious emergency? Do you know an artist working in a craft discipline who is dealing with a major setback due to illness, accident, fire, natural disaster, or other type of unexpected event?

Our emergency relief assistance includes grants, no-interest loans, booth fee waivers and discounts on supplies and equipment. Before filling out an application, carefully read through the eligibility criteria and support documentation requirements.
