Artists in need who are practicing in the disciplines of visual arts, film/video/electronic/digital arts, or choreography and living in the U.S., Tribal Nations, District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories who are seeking support for medical, dental or mental health-related emergency expenses: the Rauschenberg Medical Emergency Grants provides one-time grants of up to $5,000 for  recent emergencies. This program, supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation and administered by New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), is designed to serve artists in financial need who otherwise may delay critical treatment or incur substantial and perhaps overwhelming debt.

Cycle 12 will open March 1 with a deadline of April 5 for emergencies occurring August 1, 2021 and later.
