IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE FOR INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS
As part of our response to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, ACA has established The Artists Emergency Relief Fund to help artists in Greater Austin maintain their personal and financial stability in these uncertain times.
Artists may apply for up to $500 to replace verifiable lost income due to the cancellation of a specific, scheduled gig or opportunity (i.e. commissions, performances, contracts) due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 precautionary measures. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis, and are subject to approval and available funds. Priority will be given to ACA members, and to applicants facing food or housing insecurity. ACA is reviewing applications daily, so that funds can be in artists' hands as quickly as possible.
While repayment is not required, an artist who receives funding through the Artists Emergency Relief Fund will be asked to contribute to the ACA community by donating artistic work, creative services, or volunteer time.
Our funding pool is limited, so please be sure to contact your landlord, financial institutions, utilities, phone company and other service providers to find out what short term relief they may be offering.
