New Relief Programs Available for Arts and Cultural Venues Impacted by COVID-19

Author: Zachary KleinDate: May 21, 2021

New Jersey arts and cultural venues that have been forced to close their doors due to COVID-19 may be eligible for much-needed financial relief under two new programs, federal relief under the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) and state relief under New Jersey Senate Bill 3521.  As of April 8, 2021, the federal SVOG program began accepting applications, and the same day, Gov. Phil Murphy signed legislation that provides $15 million in federal COVID-19 relief aid for arts and cultural venues throughout New Jersey.

The United States Small Business Administration (SBA) recently announced that it is accepting applications for Shuttered Venue Operators Grants. The program was established by the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act, and amended by the American Rescue Plan Act, which includes over $16 billion in grants to shuttered venues.
