Southwest Folklife Alliance is committed to helping traditional artists and culture bearers in Arizona during the COVID-19 crisis. We have secured additional funds to provide relief to those with financial needs. SFA will make up to 20 awards during this award period. Awards of $500 will be distributed by Dec. 30, 2020.

Deadline to apply Dec. 15th, 2020
Each application will be reviewed by SFA staff to determine eligibility

SFA is working in partnership with Arizona Commission on the Arts to re-distribute public resources. Because of this artists and culture bearers will not be able to receive awards from both organizations.

If you have questions or concerns please contact Kate Jewett-Williams by email at [email protected] or phone 520-528-1747
