With funding support from the Australian Government through the Office for the Arts, Support Act is now offering cash grants of $2,000 ($2700 to families with dependent children) called COVID-19 Crisis Relief Grants (formerly known as MusicKeeper/CrewKeeper).
Clive Miller, CEO of Support Act, explains: “It’s a difficult time for everyone working in the creative sector at the moment and particularly those working in live performance.
“Lockdowns and restrictions are impacting music and performing arts workers around the country, and many are falling through the cracks when it comes to the other federal and state funds available.
“What’s clear is that the impacts of the Delta variant are going to be felt for quite some months and this additional support from the Government will help to ensure that more people are able to access our crisis relief and mental health and wellbeing services.”
