Pandemic Recovery Grants

Pandemic Recovery Grants respond to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic by providing support to arts organizations as they build resilience and look to the future with programming, planning, and reimagining their work. This grant is limited to small and medium organizations with budgets under $500,000.

Pandemic Recovery Grants are for both established and emerging arts and culture groups. The funding will prioritize but not be limited to the following criteria: 

  • Organizations that have not received County recovery funds previously;  
  • BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) organizations as determined by mission, leadership and community served; and  
  • Organizations that serve arts participants and audiences in economically disadvantaged areas of the County. 


Nonprofit arts organizations based in Fairfax County, the City of Fairfax, or the City of Falls Church are eligible to apply.
