As we continue to hear about the impact of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, CERF+ is reaching out to artists and arts organizations in affected communities to provide emergency relief and useful recovery resources.

Emergency Relief for Artists

Are You an Artist Working in a Craft Discipline?

CERF+’s emergency financial relief program, the Craft Emergency Relief Fund, provides grants up to $6,000 and interest-free loans up to $9,000 to artists working in craft disciplines who are facing a career threatening emergency or disaster. CERF+ staff is available during the week from 8:30am-5:30pm EST at 802.229.2306 and info@cerfplus.org to provide counseling and referrals to artists searching for emergency resources.
