New Grant Program Aids New Jersey Performance Venues Impacted by COVID-19
Author: Ronald S. BienstockDate: August 31, 2021
Performance venues have been significantly impacted by COVID-19, with many just now reopening after being shuttered for more than a year. To help businesses recover, New Jersey is launching the Community Stage Relief Grant Program, a $17.5 million program that will provide grants of up to $300,000 to eligible for-profit establishments that host at least two regularly occurring live performances or events per week.
“The COVID-19 pandemic hit performing arts businesses particularly hard, and now that we are able to begin safely reopening it is critical that we help them get back on their feet,” NJEDA Chief Executive Officer Tim Sullivan said in a press statement. “The New Jersey Community Stage Relief Grant Program, along with the New Jersey Council on the Arts program for nonprofit establishments, will provide much-needed funding to help performing arts venues recover from the impact of COVID-19 and get back to hosting the shows that help make New Jersey such a vibrant, exciting place to live.”
