Emergency Grants for New Music Freelancers

. . .

The New Music Solidarity Fund is designed to help new/creative/improvised music freelancers whose livelihood has been threatened as a result of performances which have been canceled during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Fund was started by a group of musicians in the new music community who raised over $130,000 in a week, primarily from fellow musicians, composers and music professionals.

Our hope is that the Solidarity Fund will continue to grow in the coming weeks, so that we can assist and bolster more people in need of emergency relief. For now, at least two hundred and sixty, $500 emergency assistance grants will be made available to applicants who meet the grant’s criteria.
