Financial and Addiction Recovery Assistance
MusiCares may grant short-term financial assistance for personal or addiction needs that have arisen due to unforeseen circumstances. Funding may be awarded for needs such as rent, car payments, insurance premiums, utilities, medical/dental expenses, psychotherapy, addiction treatment, sober living, and other personal expenses.
Applicants must be able to document employment history in one of the following areas:
- A minimum of five years employment in the music industry
- Six commercially released recordings or videos (singles)
When financial assistance is provided by MusiCares, it is charitable in nature and therefore, before seeking such assistance, applicants are required to investigate all other possible sources of aid. All approved assistance is paid directly to a creditor/third party. At its sole discretion, MusiCares reserves the right to deny or approve financial assistance.
