Gimme Shelter Performer Emergency Fund

This appears to be an independent fund established just in response to COVID-19.

Housing funds for independent performers of any format in Oregon.

The Gimme Shelter Performer Emergency Fund is offering housing funds ($100-$500) to independent contractor performers in any format (musicians, actors, dancers, drag queens, strippers, comedians, storytellers, firebreathers, singers, clowns…all performers) who have lost wages due to the Novel Coronavirus/COVID-19.

This fund provides equal opportunity to all qualified individuals regardless of race, age, ethnicity, religion, citizenship status, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or political affiliation. This fund is only available to OREGON RESIDENTS, and those that receive grant awards will be required to submit a W-9 form.
