DANCERS: Are you a dancer anywhere in the US in dire financial emergency because of lack or loss of work? You may be eligible for a one-time Rauschenberg Dancer Emergency Grant of up to $3,000 through this national program. Cycle 10 is open through December 1 for essential expenses such as housing, medicine/healthcare, and food. A recorded information session, along with guidelines and the online application, are available here. Cycle 11 will be open January 23 – February 23, 2024.

This program is open to artists living anywhere in the U.S, its territories, tribal nations, and the District of Columbia.
