We have been advised of a couple of opportunities for artists to receive grants to assist them during the COVID-19 crisis.
The first is an Arts Relief Program that San Francisco Mayor London Breed recently announced. This will include $1.5 million in grants to individual artists, teaching artists, and small- to mid- budget sized arts and cultural organizations, and $1 million in low-interest loans to small- to mid-budget sized arts and cultural organizations.

Separately, the SF Arts Commission has created a Relief Fund for Artists, offering grants of up to $250 for artists who have graduated from a Bay Area institution or who have have lived in the Bay Area for two years as a working artist.
