Musicians’ Relief Fund

The Musicians’ Relief Fund helps union musicians who work gig to gig and are confronting extraordinary financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please Note: We have more applications than we can currently fund. We are pausing applications at this time and will reopen the process as more funds become available. We will reach out directly to all musicians who have already submitted applications.

AFM Emergency Relief Fund

This fund assists musicians adversely affected by major disasters such as earthquakes, flooding, hurricanes, wildfires, or tornadoes.  AFM members in good standing who resided or were employed as a musician in impacted areas designated by FEMA as Federal Disaster Areas (or in the case of Canada a provincial state of emergency declaration) and were in good standing at the time of the loss may apply to the AFM Emergency Relief Fund for assistance.
