HK Foundation


Rising rents and cost of living are threatening New York City's creative class, including its visual artists. Many of them find it increasingly daunting to pursue their fine arts work while supporting themselves.

The Hell's Kitchen Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization awarding grants to visual artists living in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood to assist them in pursuing their arts.

If you're a visual artist living in Hell's Kitchen and would like to be considered for a grant, please download the application form OR fill out the application form online.

Grant Recipients will be announced in late May 2019.
