Our friends at NYFA have recently set up a relief fund for artists effected by Sandy. Details are below (taken from NYFA website)…

The Andy Warhol Foundation, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation and Lambent Foundation (a project of the Tides Center) have established an Emergency Relief Fund, administered by NYFA to assist artists with damages and losses as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Eligible artists can be working in any discipline and reside in Connecticut, New Jersey or New York.

Damages are broadly defined and include, but are not limited to: damage to physical work; damage to homes/studios/other facilities; loss of equipment or supplies; loss of income, and reimbursement for cancelled performances/appearances/engagements. We anticipate the overwhelming majority of grants will range between $1,000 and $5,000, but there may be extraordinary circumstances in which slightly smaller or larger grants might be made.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and grants will be issued every two weeks.

To apply, please click on ‘apply’ below to create a new account or to edit an existing application. If you have any questions, please contact or call 212.366.6900. Requirements for application are posted here

Not to be ungrateful and i’m sure any and all help is wonderful but have these organizations looked into what things cost these days. Why not 5-10K? And perhaps part II would be to help artist prepare for future events like this-yes there will be more severe storms next year and the year after-and have the right insurance for themselves in place.
