Chatham Artist & Arts-Worker Relief Effort

Chatham County

The Chatham Artist & Arts-Worker Relief Effort (CAARE) is available to performing, visual, or literary artists or arts-workers living in Chatham County, NC – and in need of financial assistance due to COVID-19 cancellations and closures. (For the purpose of CAARE, we define arts-worker as someone who earns some part of their income in the arts by making arts projects possible, including exhibition managers, artist managers, stage managers, arts nonprofit administrators, sound technicians, etc.)

Decisions will be made each Thursday, beginning April 9. Applications must be received by Tuesday at 4:59 p.m. to be considered by the CAARE committee for that week’s funding. Applications received after Tuesday at 5 p.m. will be reviewed the following week. Disbursements will be made weekly.
