KFFs Emergency Panelists will consider the urgent nature of each request, the opportunity for which the curator is applying for funding, the impact an Emergency Grant would have on the curators ability to carry out the project, the clarity of the written request, and the strength of the work samples submitted.

Receipt of your application will be acknowledged via an automated email. Please be aware that communication from KFF may unintentionally go to your Spam folder.

Grant checks are mailed to awardees within four weeks of approval. KFF has a small Programs team that is responsible for reviewing all Emergency Grants requests. We appreciate applicants refraining from calling with phone inquiries.
