DeKalb County Community Development is providing grants to eligible DeKalb County citizens within the arts community who face dire financial emergencies due to the pandemic. Callanwolde has been asked to administer these grants. The goal of this funding is to provide assistance for artists with an immediate need for overdue rent or mortgage payments, utility assistance, or other unforeseen financial/emergency assistance. Replacement of lost income is NOT a goal of this funding.
We are attaching a preliminary application form here in order to gather eligibility information. Please complete this and return to email@example.com. If you are deemed eligible for this particular round of funding, you will next be asked to provide additional documentation to demonstrate the expenses that are causing your hardship. A link will be sent for you to upload these documents, or you may mail them. We will provide those details once your eligibility is confirmed. Once again, we will not be seeking documentation on lost income, or covering lost income. Decisions on awards and amounts of awards will be made on a case by case basis, until the funding is depleted.
We have a mandate from the county to distribute these funds in a timely manner, and request that you return the completed, signed form ASAP, and at the latest by October 20, 2020 to be considered.
