The Women’s Center for Creative Work (WCCW) is excited to announce the third year of our Emergency Health Grant for Artists initiative! With funding from both an anonymous donor through the Tides Foundation and Metabolic Studio, we will provide over $80,000 in grants to individual artists to support emergency medical, mental health, and dental needs. This year we are excited to facilitate the grant with our community partners Mujeres de Maiz, Sustainable Little Tokyo, and artist and producer Cori Consuelo.


Artists are eligible to apply for up to $3,000. Typical grants will be between $2,000 and $3,000. In addition, each grant recipient will have an opportunity to receive three hours of consultation (case-management) with a social worker within three months of receiving the grant.

Information and grant writing assistance sessions will be held at the WCCW and in connection with community partner organizations during the open application period: -facebook.com/events/366640943808376

This granting opportunity fosters our ongoing goal of providing holistic support for artists and makers through feminist principles, including the redistribution of resources. A panel comprised of our community partner organizations and a medical professional will select grant recipients based on applicant eligibility, artistic merit, urgency of need, and the potential for the grant to be used effectively.

Artists of all disciplines who:
— Live in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, or Orange Counties.
— Identify as one or more of the following: female, transgender, non-binary, person of color, or low-income.
— Have a medical, mental health, or dental emergency, OR have an illness-related financial need.
— Are not enrolled in a full-time academic program.
— Are at least 21 years old.

Artists in all disciplines and stages of their career are eligible to apply. Artists are not required to be US citizens. Applications may be submitted on behalf of an eligible artist unable to submit it on their own. Applications may be submitted online or by standard mail.
