Announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Cultural Affairs Commissioner Gonzalo Casals in May 2021, the New York City Artist Corps represents a historic investment in artists by the City of New York. The $25 million program will support artists who live and work in NYC while giving New Yorkers opportunities to experience cultural programming across the city starting this summer. As New York emerges from the pandemic, art and culture are an essential component of the city’s recovery. City Artist Corps will make sure working artists are supported in their own right and are empowered to participate fully in the overall recovery of the City.


On June 7, 2021, the Department of Cultural Affairs announced new details of how the City Artist Corps would support artists in their work. Through a number of program partners, City Artist Corps will provide thousands of grants to support artist projects in all disciplines across all five boroughs of New York City
