NEO MUSIC RELIEF FUND
Cleveland Rocks PPF is working collaboratively with a group of music-sector and arts and culture stakeholders to create a source of dedicated funds to help support area musicians and the venues that host them through this immediate crisis.
The fund will provide immediate emergency relief up to $500 to professional musicians to compensate short term for income lost through unemployment and cancellations. A majority of the musicians we support – creative who make virtually all of their income through either the gig economy or the bar and restaurant industry – have faced catastrophic earnings loss through the COVID-19 crisis. Many support families with children and few have any significant reserves or other forms of financial support. Unemployment provides only partial relief at best, and with significant delays.
