The Cultural Council believes that a strong arts and cultural sector actively contributes to economic vitality and is central to a strong quality of life in the community. COVID-19 threatens the stability of our economy and our way of life. In response, the Council created the Palm Beach County Artist Relief Fund to support Palm Beach County creative professionals through small grants of $250 (artists in music, theatre, dance, literature and the visual arts) whose creative work has been affected by COVID-19.

Applications are now open for artists. Funds are limited, so please read the guidelines and apply today at

Those who wish to donate to the fund can do so through the Facebook Fundraiser or the Cultural Council’s website (*please indicate “Artist Relief Fund” in the gift designation field).
