Riverview Jazz, the NJ-based non-profit that produces the Jersey City Jazz Festival, is announcing a Covid-Relief grant for Hudson County jazz musicians. The grant, made possible by the New Jersey Arts and Culture Renewal Fund at the Princeton Area Community Foundation, is aimed at professional musicians who have been financially affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
"Riverview Jazz is so grateful to the New Jersey Arts and Culture Renewal Fund for giving us the opportunity to help jazz musicians in need” says Riverview Jazz Executive Director Bryan Beninghove.
“These past couple of years have hit the performing arts community particularly hard, especially jazz musicians who make their living playing live. This grant has presented an amazing opportunity to allow us to help out our fellow musicians, and for that we are truly thankful".
The grant will award ten recipients with a check of $2,000. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, reside in Hudson County, and be a performing jazz musician.
The deadline for applications is May 16, 2022, and the winners will be announced at the Jersey City Jazz Festival June 4-5, 2022.
