New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is proud to partner with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation to administer the Rauschenberg Medical Emergency Grants. Robert Rauschenberg was committed to assisting fellow artists in need of emergency medical aid, ultimately establishing the nonprofit foundation Change, Inc. in 1970. In this spirit, this program is designed to serve artists in financial need who otherwise may delay critical treatment or incur substantial and perhaps overwhelming debt. We recognize the urgency of caring for and helping one another and, while artists are famously self-sufficient, we encourage you to ask for support when needed.

This is a competitive grant program. Please review our eligibility requirements and the eligible types of expenses to determine that you are eligible before applying. If you have questions, please contact the Grants Coordinator at emergencyfunds@nyfa.org. This project is supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.

Please note: Rauschenberg Medical Emergency Grants are not for lost wages, living expenses or medical care for individuals other than the artist. Visit NYFA’s Emergency Grants page for a regularly-updated list of emergency resources.


Cycle 16 will open November 29, with a deadline of January 13, for emergencies occurring April 1, 2022 and later.
