The Austin City Council approved Resolution No. 20200604-040 on June 4, 2020 to designate $3.5 million for the Austin Creative Worker Relief Grant. The Austin Creative Worker Relief Grant provides immediate and equitably-focused grants to individual creatives and industry support staff in Austin. Applicants may apply for a $2,000 grant toward rent, bills, groceries, and other eligible COVID-19 related expenses.

Musicians who already received a grant from the Austin Music Disaster Relief Fund may still apply for an Austin Creative Worker Relief Grant, but they are only eligible for a $1,000 grant.

The Austin Creative Worker Relief Grant application will be live and accepting eligible submissions through the Austin Better Business Bureau starting August 17, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.
