The U.S. is working on a stimulus package that provides help to corporations, state/local governments, hospitals and some small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. But we know there are millions of independent creatives and contractors who will be left out of this bailout.

As a 501(c)3, non-profit, charitable organization, Urban Mediamakers will support working creatives and independent contractors in Georgia by providing unrestricted fast cash grants through the Creatives Relief Fund to support independent creatives. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and selected weekly. These one-time grants range from $50-$2,500 based on the creative’s needs.

We need your donations to fund this relief program – any amount. Please make a donation today!
