Support Act introduces “MusicKeeper” and “CrewKeeper” Crisis Relief Grants

26 March 2021

In response to the additional funding announced by the Australian Government through the Office for the Arts on 25 March, Support Act has announced a new category of crisis relief funding called “MusicKeeper” and “CrewKeeper”.

These grants of $2,000 ($2,700 for families with dependent children) will not replace JobKeeper, which winds up on 28 March, but are intended to cushion the blow for artists, crew and music workers from all genres who remain largely unable to earn income due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions designed to protect public health.

Anyone in need of financial support is strongly encouraged to apply for these grants via the Get Help page on the Support Act website:
