Events of all types have been cancelled across Massachusetts to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). As a result, individuals who earn income partially or entirely through their work within the cultural sector are losing critical opportunities to support their well-being in the Commonwealth.
In response, Mass Cultural Council established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to support individual artists and independent teaching artists/humanists/scientists living in Massachusetts whose creative practices and incomes are adversely impacted by COVID-19.
Through Mass Cultural Council’s COVID-19 Relief Fund for Individuals, grants of $1,000 are available to individuals who are independent contractors, freelancers, gig workers, and self-employed or sole proprietors who have lost income derived from their work as individual artists and independent teaching artists/humanists/scientists as a direct result of COVID-19 related cancellations and closures in Massachusetts.?
