$1,000 monthly payments available to thousands of Americans
THOUSANDS of Americans can apply for monthly payments of $1,000, but time is running out with less than two weeks until the deadline.
Creatives Rebuild New York (CRNY) provides guaranteed income to artists in the state who are in financial need.
Online applications are open until Friday, March 25, 2022.
The organization drew inspiration from dozens of guaranteed or universal basic income programs across the United States.
They want to specifically target artists across New York State who continue to experience pandemic-induced financial insecurity since 2020.
In New York, the cultural sector contributes more than $120 billion to the state economy each year.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, claims for unemployment benefits for artists and performers in New York increased by 1,208% compared to 2019, according to the New State Department of Labor York.
CRNY wants to help 2,400 artists get back on their feet with monthly payments of $1,000 for 18 months.
Applications are now open for the Guaranteed Income Program for Artists.
Who is eligible?
Any artist who is 18 years of age or older and whose primary residence is in New York can apply.
Your household income for 2021 must be below the CRNY self-sufficiency standard according to his calculator.
