It’s been nearly one year since venues across the city have shuttered. That’s why CIVL – Chicago Independent Venue League launched the SAVE Emergency Relief Fund to help furloughed venue staff, local artists, and venues. After receiving generous donations, the SAVE Fund is NOW OPEN for venue staff to apply to and will be distributed as need-based grants.
The first round of grants is currently open to VENUE STAFF ONLY until March 21st at 8 pm CST. Any Chicago-based performance venue employee who currently resides in Chicago or the surrounding suburbs is welcome to apply. This includes bar staff, production and hospitality staff, and office and administrative staff.
Artists and venues will be eligible to apply in subsequent rounds, so we ask those parties to please hold off on applying until their group’s designated round.
Venue staff, apply to the CIVL SAVE fund here: https://civlchicago.com/save
