The VABT provides emergency financial assistance to members of our community who have suffered a health crisis or medical emergency. However, due to the impact of the coronavirus and subsequent restrictions and shut downs, we understand the devastating impact this has had on the performing arts industry. As such, we are temporarily broadening our reach to provide additional support to even more members of our community.

If you are a professional performing arts worker who has been impacted financially by the COVID-19 crisis, whether through loss of work, a significant reduction in hours, or an inability to practice your craft due to ongoing restrictions, please click here to apply for covid-19 assistance

If you have suffered a health crisis or a medical emergency, please apply for Emergency Support.

If you are experiencing substantial financial distress, or other significant pressures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the VABT is temporarily accepting applications for Emergency Support, even if you are not experiencing ill health or a medical emergency.
