Have you experienced a recent, career-threatening emergency? Do you know a professional craft artist who is dealing with a major setback due to illness, accident, fire, natural disaster, or other type of unexpected event?

The Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF+) includes grants, no-interest loans, access to resources, waivers and discounts on booth fees, and donations of craft supplies and equipment.

CERF+'s Studio Protector website not only has disaster planning resources, but also information and resources to help artists in post-disaster cleanup efforts.
