Rhode Island Expansion Arts Emergency Relief Program
The Rhode Island Expansion Arts Program (RIEAP) is more than a program - we are a family, a community, and network of friends. During this stressful time, we hope you are all doing well and are safe and healthy.
After talking with several members of the Expansion Arts community, we realized that the COVID-19 crisis is having an impact on the ability of organizations to plan new programs and that relief funds would be welcome. So, we are re-purposing the grant opportunities for the Intercultural Collaboration Seed Grant and the Youth Development Grant. (This does not affect the current Intercultural Collaboration grantees.)
Instead, the RIEAP is offering a one-time only Rhode Island Expansion Arts Program Emergency Relief Fund for all Rhode Island Expansion Arts Program Alumni and Cohort.
The unrestricted fund is supported by a collaboration between Rhode Island Foundation, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA), and Rhode Island Council for the Humanities (RICH) to provide much-needed assistance during this time of uncertainty. This RIEAP Emergency Relief Fund allows each organization the flexibility to address the areas most needed for their organization.
Where to find and submit applications:
All applications must be submitted online through the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities’ grants portal. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis but must be submitted prior to the deadline of Monday, June 1 at 5 p.m. EST.
