COVID19 EMERGENCY RELIEF FUNDING FOR FREELANCERS


With the passing ofAB 5, California moved to extend employee protections to freelancers this year, but many creative professionals still work for themselves and don't have typical salaried-worker safety nets like extended sick leave. Some self-employed people will not qualify forunemployment insurance, particularly artists who rely on informal, direct cash payments or practice without a business license.


Below is a list of mutual aid funds that distribute emergency grants to artists, creative professionals and freelancers facing financial hardships. Most of these funds also accept donations—many of which are tax deductible—from those among us who are more fortunate and looking to help. We also encourage you to donate directly to the low-income artists, service workers and freelancers in your community via PayPal, Cash App or Venmo.
