A coalition of artist rights organizations have created a centralized resource hub to help the music community navigate business and find crucial aid amid the coronavirus crisis.
The list of organizations behind the new site, MusicCovidRelief.com, includes the Artist Rights Alliance (ARA), American Association of Independent Music (A2IM), the Music Artists Coalition (MAC), National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA), Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), the Recording Academy, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Songwriters of North America (SONA).
The site includes how-to guides, links and downloadable forms to help members of the music community apply for unemployment benefits and small business loans, access relief funds and grants from organizations like the National Endowment for the Arts and more. Importantly, it also helps music workers make sense of how they can benefit from the CARES Act stimulus bill signed into law on March 27.
