Arts and culture are a vital component of Colorado’s economic and cultural vitality, playing an important role in community resiliency and recovery. The COVID-19 Relief program for arts, cultural and entertainment artists, crew members and organizations (Colorado Arts Relief program) is a funding initiative passed by the State of Colorado Legislature, Senate Bill 20B-001. This initiative directs up to $7.5 million for relief payments to eligible artists, crew members and organizations. Funding through this bill will be distributed through two separate grant applications: 1) Colorado Arts Relief—Business and Organization and, 2) Colorado Arts Relief—Individuals. The programs are administered by Colorado Creative Industries.
