Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) — Grants are coming to live venues struggling to recover from a pandemic.
According to the Small and Medium Business Administration, the venue will have the opportunity to receive up to $ 10 million in grants through the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant program.
This was a work in progress for some time as the event space was lobbying for federal relief through a campaign called “Save Our Stages.” In Music City, this money has helped so many live venue spaces, many of which have been closed since March.
In total, the Financial Assistance Act has allocated $ 15 billion to Shuttered Venue Operators Grants. This grant is available at live venues, live performing arts organizations, cinemas and cultural institutions.
If you are one of these organizations and the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced your bottom line, you can join the SBA-sponsored webinar on Thursday at 2:00 pm to outline the program.

Examples include Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). The new coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain previously unidentified in humans. COVID-19 is an abbreviation for “Coronavirus Disease 2019”, which is the time when this coronavirus strain was discovered.
