About the Regional Arts Commission

The Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis is the largest public funder of non-profit arts in the region, providing grants to individual artists, arts and culture organizations, and other programs since 1985. RAC established the Artist Relief Fund through the St. Louis Community Foundation on April 1st to help working artists who have lost income due to the pandemic. So far, the fund has distributed $500 and $1,000 relief grants to more than 130 artists and will resume accepting new relief applications once additional funds have been secured.
