The Colorado Arts Relief Fund for Organizations and Businesses provides general operating support to arts, culture, and entertainment organizations and businesses. The program’s purpose is to support a resilient post-pandemic economy. Funds are targeted to help avoid permanent arts, culture, and entertainment business closures, retain or rehire jobs, and preserve community cultural assets affected by the COVID-19 public health emergency. This funding prioritizes organizations and businesses that have the greatest potential to stimulate their local economy and that serve the most pandemic-impacted communities. By providing financial assistance to the arts and culture organizations significant to communities across Colorado, this funding will help support the grantee’s recovery.
