Another cycle of Rocket Relief grants is now available for individual artists in the Kansas City-area (within 80 mile radius) who find themselves needing financial assistance as they navigate their way through the Coronavirus pandemic. Artists who apply have a chance to be selected through a weighted lottery system that could provide them with a $1,000 unrestricted cash grant.
The first 10 recipients will be notified on September 25, 2020, and every subsequent week 10 artists will be drawn from the lottery and notified until the funds are depleted. $50,000 is currently available for distribution. Applications may continue to be submitted after September 18 and eligible applicants will be added to the pool until funds are depleted.
Artists who have already applied for the Rocket Relief grant from the summer cycle and did not receive a grant will have their application automatically re-entered into the pool for the second cycle. Artists will have the opportunity to revise their application based upon their circumstances between August 18 and September 8.
