Databases of Arts Sector Emergency Resources
- NYFASource, based at The New York Foundation for the Arts
NYFASource is the most comprehensive national listing of emergency resources for artists. The database is also a source for information about grants, awards, and programs for all artists, regardless of medium.
The Actors Fund focuses primarily on resources that are relevant to the entertainment industry (which encompasses many disciplines including acting, literary arts, and visual arts), however their emergency listings are even more broad-based.
