How to Access Emergency Relief Funds and Services

The video of our workshop on “How to Access Funds and Community Resources” is now available.

Find out about funds and other help now here for you! We also explain the most common mistakes that are made in applications.

“We learned in reading the Pinellas Artists Relief Fund applications that many creatives are not aware that they are eligible for these other funds, and that several of the funds have broadened their eligibility,” states John Collins of the Arts Alliance. “We also learned how important it is to get information to artists about the social services in the county that are here to help.”

Hosted by Kimberly Jackson, Esq., Executive Director of the SPC Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College, this one-hour presentation covers new deadlines, eligibility and coverage – and answers frequently-asked questions.

We’ll cover all these funding possibilities.
