The COVID-19 pandemic has created intense financial hardship for artists, artist managers, crew and music workers across all genres. Many of you were the first to lose your jobs and your income, and our sector could well be the last to recover.
With funding support from the Australian Government through the Office for the Arts, Support Act is now offering cash grants of $2,000 ($2,700 to families with dependent children) called COVID-19 Crisis Relief Grants (formerly known as MusicKeeper/CrewKeeper).
Please note: If you have previously applied for,and received, a COVID-19 Crisis Relief Grant, you will have to wait 6 months before you can apply for a further grant.
Applications for live performing arts workers will be open from 23 August 2021.
