Where’s our bailout? Oh, wait, here it is.
The Texas Commission on the Arts, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, has set aside some cash for artists and arts organizations impacted (negatively, we would assume) by Hurricane Ike.
Organizations can get between $1,000 and $5,000 and are required to describe just what Ike did and how much it’ll cost to fix it.
Individual artists can get between $500 and $2,000 and must describe the storm’s damage and throw in a résumé to boot.
Applications are accepted via email, and the process actually sounds pretty simple, especially if you’ve ever applied for anything else ever.
More info can be found over here, and the deadline is May 1, so y’all better get typing.
