$1,000 grants to jazz artists who have lost significant income due to COVID-19. 

Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. The highest priority will go to the artists who have faced the most significant, damaging losses due to COVID-19  pandemic response cancellations.

The final grat pool will reflect Jazz road goals such as diversity and intersectionality in multiple areas including geographic, gender, race/ethnicity, age, disability, etc., as well as reach artists located in more rural, isolated areas. There will also be a priority to support artists who represent the African-American community as well as those who identify as women.

Mellon Foundation The initiative is conducted in partnership with five other Regional Arts Organizations (Arts Midwest, Mid-America Arts Alliance, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, New England Foundation for the Arts, and Western Arts Alliance/WESTAF).
