A Grant for Parents Who Write

I know several of my writer-friends have kids, so perhaps this will be of interest.  The announcement showed up in Broad Universe.

In recognition of the challenges of leading a creative life while raising children, the Sustainable Arts Foundation provides financial support to writers and artists with families. They offer a number of $6,000 awards in both the Spring and in Winter. This is brand spanking new, and the director asked me to share it with you. The applicant must have at least one child under the age of 18.

They welcome applications from anywhere, but give some preference to residents of the San Francisco Bay area. In addition, they award a number of Promise Awards of smaller dollar figures to applicants whose work may not qualify for the main awards, but demonstrates both skill and potential. As with most grants, your portfolio aids the judges to rank you. They are also interested in hearing about your plans and how this award might assist you in attaining your goals.
