COVID-19 ARTIST RESOURCES

Artists, creatives and arts and culture organizations have been deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, here is a list of helpful links.

“We created this website to bring together what you need to get help in dealing with the problems created by COVID-19. Here you’ll find about applying for unemployment, rental assistance, small business grants and other City, State and Federal benefits. You’ll find information about housing rights, getting tested, receiving food, avoiding infection and eventual reopening. We are Newark Strong, and we will emerge from this crisis working together for an even stronger city guided by our shared commitment to social, economic and racial justice.”
