Emergency Financial Assistance for Artists. The Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s mission is to assist experience, professional artists who have worked for a significant period of time. The Foundation welcomes, throughout the year, applications from visual artists who are painters, sculptors and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. The Foundation encourages applications from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic. (The Foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and financial need, whether professional, personal or both.) Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. Deadline: Ongoing
