The SAG-AFTRA Foundation and the SAG-AFTRA MPPWF have jointly created a Disaster Relief Fund, available to eligible SAG-AFTRA members who have been impacted by COVID-19, as well as members who are affected by the 2021 winter storms.
All applications for Emergency Financial Assistance, COVID-19 Relief and Disaster Relief will go through the Disaster Relief Fund. We’ve streamlined our assistance programs into this one fund to expedite resources and services.
SAG-AFTRA members are eligible to apply for COVID-19 Relief if they are currently active and paid up on their dues through October 2019.
COVID-19 Relief is available for SAG-AFTRA members who are unable to pay their basic living expenses (food/housing/health care/utilities) at present. We ask that if you have the resources to cover these expenses, please wait to apply. These are unprecedented times and we all must steward our resources very carefully.
SAG-AFTRA members are eligible to apply for Disaster Relief if they are currently active and paid up on their dues through October 2019 and have experienced loss of housing, evacuation or emergency medical needs directly related to a natural disaster, including the recent winter storms, wildfires and hurricanes.
The Actors Fund will assist by administering these resources on the ground. All applications are confidential and anonymous. We are receiving thousands of requests. Please be patient. We are working as quickly as we can to respond to all applications.
