The SOJOURN Queer Artist Relief Fund provides mini-grants supporting critical needs of artists whose livelihoods have been impacted by COVID-19. With events, performances, and conferences across the country canceled, the hospitality industry closure, growing travel restrictions, significant health threats, cross-sector lay-offs, and social distancing recommendations, artists are facing severe career disruption and loss.
 
These unrestricted cash grants are intended to support working artists with:
  • Lost wages and earnings;
  • Loss from event, performance, and conference cancellations and school / community-based education closures;
  • Medical expenses;
  • Rent and mortgage payments, food, utilities, and other living expenses.
Applications are accepted until July 15, 2020. Grants range from $100-$500 based on funds available.
