A special message re COVID-19 and Crisis Relief.

You can find our current advice regarding COVID-19 and making an application for crisis relief here. Please review before submitting your application.

A couple of things to keep in mind when making your application:

  • These grants are not competitive. They are available to everyone who meets our criteria
  • You can be receiving Government Benefits (including Jobkeeper and Jobseeker) and still meet our criteria
  • You can apply even if you are a registered small business. We won’t fund your business but we will provide support for household expenses
  • Please don’t be embarrassed about making an application. If you need support, we are here to help.

N.B. This application is for musicians, crew and music workers only. 

What you will need to complete this application:

Our Crisis Relief application will ask you for your contact details; your career bio and references; and an explanation of the crisis you are experiencing.

You will need to provide your current annual income (salary, benefits, royalties etc); as well as the annual income for your household (if you live with a partner or have a family).  We will ask you to break this down into fortnightly payments.

You will also be asked to provide a break down of your fortnightly expenses. These include things like rent/mortgage; groceries, medical costs, utilities, clothing, car, council rates, phone/internet, credit card payments etc

We will also ask you to list any outstanding debts or mortgage repayments.

We encourage you to review your budget prior to commencing the form as this will make it quicker to complete. Try using this spreadsheet calculator that we have developed. It will really help you!
