COVID-19 Relief Resources for Artists, Musicians, business owners, and the recently unemployed

COVID-19 has now, in some way affected nearly every person on this planet. Many essential workers are risking their lives to ensure we have food and supplies during “stay at home” orders. On the entertainment side, specifically with music, artists are unable to tour or do shows currently. The amount of people this affects is staggering. I wanted to provide some links to resources that can help during this tough time.

When people think of The Recording Academy, someone may think they only hold the GRAMMY awards once a year, but in fact, the organization does so much more. MusiCares is a charitable foundation of The Recording Academy and provides assistance for people in music in times of need. They have started the COVID-19 Relief Fund and people affected by the novel coronavirus can apply for assistance. For transparency, I am a current member of the Recording Academy. Details below.
