The sixth federal COVID-19 relief package, the American Rescue Plan, will extend or expand nearly every form of federal assistance that has been available to orchestras amid the coronavirus pandemic, including the Shuttered Venue Operators Grants, Employee Retention Tax Credit, and National Endowment for the Arts funding. It also introduces new opportunities.

Join the League’s Washington, DC advocacy team and Tiffany Gourley Carter, Policy Counsel for National Council of Nonprofits, for a quick review of the latest developments and a guided tour through League COVID-19 resources available to help your orchestra navigate various forms of relief, and to hear how to stay engaged in speaking up with policy leaders in the coming months. This free webinar for League members will provide a top-line overview and will be followed by additional learning events that will take a deeper dive into relief provisions.

Your questions will help to inform our planning for this event and the League’s ongoing advocacy. Please feel welcome to add to our question portal.
