INDIANAPOLIS — More financial help is on the way for music and entertainment venues in Marion County.
On Thursday Mayor Joe Hogsett announced a third round of funding for the Music Cities Strategy Recovery Program.
Independent music venues in Marion County can apply for a grant of up to $20,000 to help pay for rent, utilities, and other overhead costs.
Mayor Hogsett says the pandemic is not over yet and independent venues still need a boost.
Applications are available at musicalfamilytree.org. The deadline to apply is August 27.
Jim Rawlinson, Board Chair of Musical Family Tree, stated the following in a release to WRTV.
“Independent music venues are the lifeblood of the music scene, where local musicians learn their trade and build careers. MFT has been excited to be a partner with the City of Indianapolis over the last year and a half, awarding over half a million dollars in funding with this new round of grants to venues in a time of crisis. We'll continue to look for ways to help the music community through this.”
