We are thrilled to announce that as a TN Community CARES Program grant recipient, we have been endowed to offer musicians in the greater Nashville area substantial relief from the financial effects of COVID-19.
Simply put, HOPE-20 wants to help you pay your housing and utility bills....up to $5,000 per person between now and December 4th!
Beyond the payment of housing and utility bills, you are eligible to receive groceries on a bi-weekly basis.
To qualify, applicants must meet specific criteria, and be willing and able to provide proof of financial claims made in the application. Throughout the process, you may be asked to verify that:
1. Your primary residence is in the Greater Nashville area;
2. Your primary source of income is from the music industry, and you were engaged in such activity as of March 15, 2020;
3. As a direct result of COVID-19 business closures or COVID-19 illness, you’ve suffered a substantial loss of income and are currently having difficulties paying bills.
