Am I eligible for help?

If you work in performing arts and entertainment and have been affected by Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma, please fill out our Hurricane Relief application. We will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

We provide free and confidential assistance nationally to everyone who works in performing arts and entertainment—including actors, dancers, musicians, stagehands, playwrights and many more.
