Funding Information

The Literary Arts Emergency Fund will award one-time, unrestricted emergency grants from $5,000 to $50,000.

Grant amounts will be determined by the following factors: financial need and projected loss due to COVID-19; budget size; diversity, equity, and inclusion as it relates to an organization’s staff and board; poets and writers contracted with; audiences served; geographic location; and an organization’s ability to continue offering programming.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Literary arts organizations and publishers.
  • Incorporated nonprofits with 501(c)3 status OR a fiscal agent.

*Because recent financial losses experienced by nonprofit literary arts organizations and publishers have been substantial and emergency relief is limited, libraries, museums, book arts organizations, humanities councils, centers for the book, residencies, playwriting organizations, author’s homes, and organizations devoted to championing the legacy of an individual writer are ineligible.
