Stimulus money available for movie theaters and live venues; SBA sponsored webinar on Thursday, January 14
Are you a theatrical producer, talent representative, venue promoter or do you operate a live venue, live performing arts organization, movie house or cultural institution and have been impacted by COVID-19?

Register for SBA’s webinar on Thursday, January 14, at 3 p.m. ET, for a preliminary overview of the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant program included in the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act. Eligible organizations with a reduction in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic will have the opportunity to receive up to a $10 million grant under the program.

This webinar will provide introductory information about the grants, who can apply, how potential organizations can prepare, and additional details re: eligibility and applications.  

Hi guys!

The stimulus bill signed by the President set aside $15 billion in relief for live venues and movie theaters. The SBA is administering the program, and this is the first official info coming out.

You do not want to miss this opportunity. Unofficial press reports have said the grant amount available for each venue is the lesser of your 2019 gross receipts or $10 million. (Don't hold me to that!)

We anticipate that this will be a very straight forward program. If you cannot make the webinar, it will be recorded.

If I can be of help, send me an email at eric@scedd.com.
