  2. You must be primarily engaged as a freelance musician.

  5. You have lost work due to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).

 

Applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be received by November 15, 2020. Payment amount is subject to availability of funds. Initial payments will not exceed $300 but may be revised upward if additional funding permits.
