The SAG-AFTRA Foundation has created the COVID-19 Relief Fund that is now available to eligible SAG-AFTRA members who have been impacted by this pandemic.
All applications for Emergency Financial Assistance will go to the COVID-19 Relief Fund. We’ve streamlined our assistance programs into this one fund to expedite resources and services.
SAG-AFTRA members are eligible to apply to the Fund if they are currently active and paid up on their dues through October 2019.
Emergency financial assistance is available for people who are unable to pay their basic living expenses (food/housing/health care) over the next two months. We ask that if you have the resources to cover that period, please wait to apply. These are unprecedented times and we all must steward our resources very carefully.
The Fund covers members who are in an emergency financial crisis related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to cover basic expenses such as rent, mortgage, utilities, medical bills and other essential needs.
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.
