TCG Session Replay | Federal Relief: PPP for Freelance Theatre Makers

Stage Directions • Industry NewsTheatre Buzz • March 15, 2021

On March 3rd and March 8th, 2021, TCG hosted a technical assistance session led by Andrea Nellis, TCG’s interim CFO; Emilya Cachapero, TCG director of artistic & international programs; and Lucy Mallett of Arts FMS designed to help theatre makers who are self-employed, freelance, and/or those working as 1099 contractors access federal relief from the Payroll Protection Program (PPP). Here is the video of that session:

Over the past year, TCG has fought hard to make sure that freelance theatre makers and other gig economy workers with mixed income sources (such as W-2s and 1099) receive full support from federal relief, rather than unfairly being limited to partial benefits. The Biden administration has just altered the Paycheck Protection Program’s rules, increasing the amount sole proprietors are eligible to receive and imposing a 14-day freeze on loans to companies with 20 or more employees. This means the time is now to apply to this critical source of relief. Please learn more about TCG’s overall efforts to advocate and disseminate federal relief efforts here.
