CARES Act Arts Funding Tracker

Type of Funding Requested (Organizational or Personal)

CARES Act Arts Funding Tracker

On March 27, 2020, Congress passed a historic $2.3 trillion CARES Act package to financially support businesses and gig workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Americans for the Arts and the Arts Action Fund have launched this CARES Act Arts Funding Tracker to measure the arts sector's success in securing critical financial relief. We are collecting this information both from arts and cultural organizations/businesses as well as from self-employed arts workers and independent arts contractors. We will use this information to quickly inform Congress and other decision-makers about how the CARES Act has impacted the arts sector, and to help address future needs. This is also the place for you to tell your story about how the arts are being engaged in your community's COVID-19 response or recovery effort.
