Rauschenberg Emergency Grants

The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation is partnering with New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) to administer the Rauschenberg Emergency Grants, an emergency grant program that provide one-time grants of up to $5,000 for medical or dental emergencies.  The grants are available to visual and media artists, and choreographers living anywhere in the United States or U.S. Territories.  This program was established in the tradition of the artist's Change, Inc., a non-profit foundation established in 1970 by Robert Rauschenberg to assist professional artists of all disciplines in need of emergency medical aid.

Learn more about the program, including application requirements and how to apply, on NYFA's Rauschenberg Emergency Grants website.

Though funded by the Rauschenberg Foundation, the program is administered by the NYFA and all questions should be directed to emergencyfunds@nyfa.org.  Inquiries to the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation will be forwarded directly to emergencyfunds@nyfa.org.
