Harvey Arts Recovery Fund (HARF) is a first-of-its-kind initiative dedicated to supporting the creative community in the aftermath of a natural disaster. HARF was created as a volunteer collaboration among multiple organizations to meet the substantial needs of the Houston arts and cultural sector during Hurricane Harvey. As such, HARF is emerging as a national model for community-based disaster recovery in the arts.   
A collaborative effort of Houston’s art and culture services sector, HARF is focused on supporting small and mid-sized arts, culture, and history non-profit organizations as well as individual artists, musicians, performers, writers, heritage preservationists, and other cultural producers whose ability to support themselves was derailed following Hurricane Harvey.  In these communities, relief can be as simple as a new theater wardrobe and as critical as replacing revenue lost from cancelled performances. HARF funds provide recovery support across the 10-county Greater Houston region including Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Brazoria, Galveston, Liberty, Waller, Chambers, Austin, and San Jacinto counties.
HARF is an example of cooperative and collective leadership, which was provided by Galveston Historical Foundation, Fresh Arts, Dance Source Houston, CultureWorks Greater Houston, The Center for Arts and Social Engagement at the University of Houston, Houston Arts Alliance and the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs for the City of Houston, with funding support from Houston Endowment.
