Lewis Prize for Music COVID-19 Community Response Fund

The Fund will support youth-serving music organizations across the country who are taking a leadership role and responding to their communities in the face of COVID-19. The fund seeks Creative Youth Development (CYD) music programs to support their responsive and adaptive efforts during these difficult times. CYD organizations uniquely act as a critical part of the social fabric devoted to supporting young people’s creative and material well being. By combining artistic training with access to mentorship, meals, transportation, mental health services, and even housing, CYD providers are practiced at meeting the immediate and unique needs of young people.
