CA$H | Emergency Grant for Small Theatres
Share |

CA$H | Emergency Grant for Small Theatres is a grant program for the Bay Area’s small organizations with budgets of under $250,000 to address either AB5 compliance or the economic impact of COVID-19. Organizations may only submit one proposal for each granting round, and must choose to apply for either AB5 or COVID-19 relief. 

The fund provides grants of $5,000 per organization for one of two purposes: 1.) to engage an attorney to help the awarded organization in crafting their own unique plan for complying with AB5; 2.) general operating funds to assist the awarded organization in dealing with projected or realized financial losses due to COVID-19.

Please read the guidelines below very carefully. While this emergency grant is based on the CA$H | Theatre program, it varies in a few key ways. 

AB5 Applications: $ 5,000
COVID-19 Applications: $5,000
