Should we receive additional funding, we will evaluate the grant amounts available. *Please note that incomplete applications will not be reviewed and requests will be processed in the order in which received. It could take up to three weeks to process a completed application.
Requirements & Qualifications include: a completed MusiCares application. Proof of cancellations and bookings. A biography, resume, or discography.
To help address the concerns of the industry during this time, we have expanded our services to include lost income due to the cancellation of scheduled gigs or performances due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 precautionary measures.
