Now there's a new kid on the block: the California Venues Grant Program, which seeks to support eligible independent live events venues that have been affected by COVID-19 in order to support their continued operation. Eligible independent live event venues must have a physical address and operate in California, which will be validated through submitted business tax returns. If your business tax returns do not reference a California address, you will be deemed ineligible.
But the grant's availability will be short-lived – it opened on Oct. 29 and ends Nov. 19 – so venue operators have to get on this opportunity fast. Nonprofits and businesses can apply. If an organization already received other funding, they can still apply.
