Arts Relief Program Seeks to Support Artists and Arts Organizations Impacted by COVID-19 in San Francisco

London N. Breed, San Francisco mayor, announced an Arts Relief Program to invest in working artists and arts and cultural organizations financially impacted by COVID-19.

The investment, according to a press release, is a combination of funding strategies designed to help the arts and culture community through grants and low-interest loans to organizations and working artists most impacted by this crisis.

The Arts Relief Program will be funded by an initial $2.5 million from the City of San Francisco and it will consist of two options, a grants program and low-interest loans, that will allow artists and organizations to choose what best meets their needs. The philanthropic community, adds the announcement, will be allowed to donate to these programs to expand impact.
