Grants to USA, Canada, and International visual artists, literary artists, and music composers to participate in the Foundation's residency program. Artists will receive fully-furnished, rent-free, and utility-paid housing on the Foundation's campus in New Mexico, with the goal of providing artists with a peaceful setting in which to pursue their creative endeavors.

The HWF places no expectations or requirements on the artists in residence. It is simply the gift of time and space. In addition to the casitas, the HWF campus includes the Commons House with wi-fi, Library, The Main House, and laundry facilities. Residents are responsible for their own food and transportation, although the Foundation does provide bicycles for artists in residence.

The HWF does not generally pay for travel costs or provide artist stipends. However, in certain cases, and dependent on the Artist Stipend Fund, the Foundation may be able to assist with travel and/or grocery expenses.

What artistic disciplines are eligible for a residency grant?

- Visual artists: painters illustrators, photographers, sculptors, filmmakers, ceramicists
- Literary artists: writers, poets, playwrights, and screenwriters
- Music composers and songwriters
