Taking Care COVID-19 Expanded Emergency Relief Application
COVID-19 Emergency Funding
Who is eligible for Taking Care?
Any theatre professional currently residing, and who has actively worked, in the Washington metropolitan area within the past two years.
During the continuing COVID-19 crisis, theatreWashington is expanding grants to Washington area theatre professionals financially affected by the loss of work by offering assistance from $500 to $5000, with the average grant estimated to be $1500. Applications will be reviewed by the staff and Advisory Panel on a monthly basis received by the 5th of each month. Grants will be awarded to applicants with the greatest need based on the information provided below, and the amount of the grant determined by the number of applications received. Previous funding will be taken into account when distributing grants.
While this is a critical time for many in the community and the assistance we can provide is limited, we hope to provide assistance to as many of our colleagues as the funding allows.
For grants awarded over $500, receipts or other supporting paperwork will be requested from the applicant for payment to be dispersed.
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to complete all questions so that the Advisory Panel has your full information to consider during the review process. Thank You
