ENTERTAINMENT COMMUNITY FUND'S EMERGENCY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The Entertainment Community Fund's emergency financial assistance program offers emergency financial assistance to support performing arts workers who are unable to pay their basic living expenses. This includes housing, food, utility bills and healthcare. These funds are available for both union and nonunion workers, but applicants need to provide documentation to prove that they have a history of earnings in professional performing arts and entertainment. Eligibility depends on how long the applicant has worked in the industry and the type of work performed. Applications and more information here.
