COVID-19 Resources

The intensifiying COVID-19 public health crisis brings particularly uncertain and challenging times for Vermont's creative sector, and the Vermont Arts Council is working to enable artists and arts and culture organizations to respond effectively. There are special considerations related to the creative sector that we want to make sure all of our constituents and stakeholders take into account.

Whenever possible, we will allow current grantees to use grant funds to compensate artists for performances, workshops, and other activities cancelled due to COVID-19. Please contact an Arts Council program director for specific guidance.

We are also actively exploring options for offering quick-response, emergency grants to mitigate the serious economic impact of COVID-19 on artists and cultural organizations. Updates will be posted on the Vermont Arts Council website in the coming weeks.

We will update this page as the situation evolves. This page was last updated on March 23, 2020.
