The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts

Regional Regranting


The Regional Re-granting Program was established in 2007 to recognize and support the movement of independently organized, public-facing, artist-centered activity that animates local and regional art scenes but that lies beyond the reach of traditional funding sources. The program is administered by non-profit visual art centers across the United States that work in partnership with the Foundation to fund artists’ experimental projects and collaborative undertakings.

Since its inception, the Regional Re-granting Program has grown steadily, adding new cities and regions to its national network each year. When COVID-19 hit and it became clear that artists needed a different kind of support, the Foundation’s Board authorized a programmatic pivot; the existing 16 partners in the Regional Re-granting Program swiftly set up COVID-19 emergency relief funds to help artists cover basic living/medical/child-care expenses. Since April 2020, the Foundation's original 16 Regional Re-granting partners have disbursed over $1 million in emergency grants. Now, as the pandemic enters its 8th month, the Foundation is doubling the number of re-granting partners in its network; 16 new programs will provide emergency funds to artists in their regions while many of the original 16 programs have already begun a second round of emergency grants.
