“Curtains Up NYC,” Free Program To Connect Live Performance Venues To Federal Relief

Recovery For All Of Us: City Launches “Curtains Up NYC,” Free Program To Connect Live Performance Venues To Federal Relief

City providing suite of free services including instructional webinars and one-on-one counseling

NEW YORK—Mayor Bill de Blasio, NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) Commissioner Anne del Castillo, and NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) Commissioner Jonnel Doris today announced the launch of Curtains Up NYC, a program to provide application assistance to live-performance venues, organizations and workers applying for federal relief.

The federal Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVO), also known as Save Our Stages, includes $15 billion for grants of up to $10 million to qualified live venue operators and promoters, performing arts organizations, theatrical producers, talent representatives, movie theater operators, and non-profit museums with auditoriums.

Curtains Up NYC will provide webinars three times a week that will review the Shuttered Venues Operators Grant program and the application process. Trained counselors will also be available for virtual, one-on-one sessions. Services are free and will begin this Wednesday, February 10, 2021.

“New York City’s live performance venues, theaters, and night clubs are the best in the world, and they’ve been hit hard by this pandemic. Their city will help them fight for every federal dollar they deserve to get back on their feet and better than ever,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “I urge every venue to take advantage of these resources, and I can’t wait to take in a performance as soon as we defeat COVID-19 once and for all.”

“The creative industries are what make New York City a global capital. The arts and entertainment sector, which has been hardest hit hard by the pandemic, is critical to the city’s recovery,” said Anne del Castillo, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. “We are pleased to partner with NYC Department of Small Business Services to launch Curtains Up NYC to help our theaters and venues secure this much needed federal financial assistance in order for them to survive until they are able to safely reopen.”
