Support Act crisis relief grants – information session from TNA


Share On

The Covid-19 pandemic has created intense financial hardship for many people working in the performing arts industries. With continued funding from the Australian Government through the Office of the Arts, Support Act is offering cash grants of $2000 ($2700 to families with dependent children) to performing arts workers called the COVID -19 Crisis Relief Grants.

These grants are not a wage subsidy, but a one off payment to help pay the rent/mortgage and living expenses. The grants are not competitive – if you meet the criteria, you will receive the grant. We encourage you to apply if you meet the criteria.

Our friends at TNA hosted an information session to explain the criteria and talk you through the application process. You can view the session here.

While we all experience change and uncertainty in different ways, it’s fair to say the new year has not kicked off how many of us in the performing arts industry might have hoped.
As 2021 draws to a close, we extend a huge thank you to everyone in the performing arts community and to all our contributors, members, and supporters.
