Any professionals with at least three years of past employment history in music and demonstrated need can apply for a $250 e-card, going to the first 4,000 eligible applicants.
MusiCares is launching “Help for the Holidays" on Tuesday (Dec. 1), which has been dubbed Giving Tuesday. As part of its ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts, MusiCares is offering $250 "essential goods" e-cards to the first 4,000 eligible applicants.
“Layoffs have left bands, crews and music support people jobless and struggling to attain the basic provisions -- from food on the table to gasoline in the car,” Laura Segura, executive director of MusiCares, said in a statement. “Despite the support we’ve been able to provide to date, the situation has yet to improve for the music industry.”
