Baltimore County has also allocated $100,000 to provide $1,000 stipends for up to 100 artists to help them recoup some of their financial losses due to the pandemic. Grants will be available on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted, and priority will be given to lower income artists, making $37,500 or less per year. Applicants will submit a streamlined application, document their artistic portfolio, and must be adult Baltimore County residents over the age of 18.
The application process will open on May 11, 2020 and details are available on the Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences web page, at www.baltimorecountymd.gov/individualartist
Once approved, artists may use these grants for a number of purposes, including recouping losses from canceled performances and events, art-related travel expenses, lost teaching opportunities and loss of supplemental income for artists working in the service industry.
