Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund Application Re-Opens

— The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the non-profit organization that owns the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell, announced today that it has re-opened applications for the Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund – a statewide relief fund to support Louisiana musicians who have lost income amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The collapse of the live music industry has affected not only musicians, but thousands
of music industry workers and cultural bearers who work alongside them. The pandemic has triggered a “domino effect” in the music sector with cancelled music events disrupting income for so many.  The deadline to apply is March 31st.
