Grant program offers guaranteed income for artists


New York artists are being offered one thousand dollars a month in guaranteed income through a private arts grant.

Creatives Rebuild New York is accepting applications from artists with some financial need, and the funding lasts for 18 months.

Cjala Surratt is the Outreach Corps Member for Central NY and Finger Lakes Region. She says the idea is to help artists who may have suffered financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“These are some funding models that can really impact and change lives,” she said.

Unlike other arts grants, the Guaranteed Income for Artists program comes with no strings attached. That means participating artists are not responsible for partnering with an outside organization or producing a finished product.
