Tools and Resources related to housing insecurity
The arts and culture sector was hit especially hard by the coronavirus pandemic, with high unemployment rates for artists and members of the creative industries. Many in our sector are experiencing housing insecurity and challenges with mortgages or paying the rent.
Arts practitioners and artists who have been experiencing housing instability, or are having trouble making rent or mortgage payments as a result of the coronavirus pandemic should know that they are not alone. Federal, state, and local governments are offering help with housing expenses and avoiding eviction. Information is available at the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau’s mortgage and housing assistance site on available resources.
