The creative industry is another industry recently impacted. With an estimated $62.5 billion yearly economic impact, the industry is vital to Georgia. In response, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has established the creATL Relief Fund.
The fund, awarded through a lottery system, will facilitate private philanthropic grants for freelance and gig-workers in the film, television, media, music, eSports and digital entertainment industries.
Approved applicants will receive $1,000 to support essential financial obligations like food, housing, utilities, medical expenses, and transportation costs.
Creatives who live and operate in Atlanta are eligible to apply. Visit the website for additional eligibility requirements and application.
