Grants of $1,000 to Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri individual artists in eligible locations for support during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to assist local artists by addressing critical needs, such as food, medical bills, rent, and debts. Eligible artists live within an 80-mile radius of the Omaha metro.
Understanding the long-reaching effects of systemic racism and injustice, The Union will prioritize BIPOC applicants during this round of funding. It is their goal to give at least 55% of their awards to BIPOC artists.

For example, a single parent with unmanageable debt will be entered twice into the lottery system due to their two stated risk factors. The more risk factors, the more entries into the application pool.
The risk factors used to determine weighted lottery system include:
