The first cycle will have funded 142 of artists with $142,000 of emergency funds. If you are yet to apply, and want to be included in the final lottery week for this cycle, applications need to be entered by 9:00 am Monday, July 13 to be eligible.
Additional funds have been raised, and we are preparing for a second cycle of grants to launch in the fall. We will make some adjustments to our application based on learnings from the first cycle, and re-release the application in the fall to grant the remaining funds. You will need to reapply to be eligible for the fall funding cycle. If you did not receive a grant during the first cycle, you will be able to apply again if you meet the eligibility criteria. Applicants who received a grant the first cycle of Rocket Relief are no longer eligible. More information about the fall funding cycle will be forthcoming.
