Covid-19 Cultural Recovery Grants
The Vermont Covid-19 Cultural Recovery Grant Program is a partnership between Vermont Humanities and the Vermont Arts Council to provide funding to arts and humanities organizations facing financial hardship due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Funding for this program is provided primarily from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
We are working together to maximize the impact of relief and recovery funding for Vermont’s arts and humanities organizations. We are committed to equitable grantmaking and will consider geographic diversity and the ability to reach underrepresented communities in our funding decisions.
In 2020, the Council partnered with Vermont Humanities to distribute $781,000 in relief funds to 123 Vermont organizations. To learn more about our Covid-19 relief efforts to date, visit our Covid-19 Resources page.
