    Hi! We are a Turkish Music Chorus that rehearses year-round on a regular basis and performs in concert venues. We do not own our own venue, we rent concert venues. The proceeds from the concert ticket sales are the main revenue for the the Chorus. Due to the pandemic, we were not able to give a concert in 2020. Would we be eligible to apply? Thanks in advance!

      Hello Ozlem,

      My sincere apologies for the delay. I’m sorry to report that I don’t believe you’d be eligible. I found this statement in the SBA’s SVO FAQ documents (page 3, #11), and it states:

      Is a mobile entity with no fixed performance space eligible to apply?
      No. Venues must have defined performance and audience spaces. If a particular venue cannot meet
      this requirement, it is not eligible to apply for an SVOG.

      Please take a look at the document to better determine your eligibility ( or ineligibility), and be sure to look through the many, many grant resources that we have on our website. Best of luck!

        we run a children’s theatre. We have been shut down since last March except for some online classes. We have lost most of our tuition revenue as well as ticket money for our three performances. Do we qualify for these grants and how do I get started if we do. We only have a few paid teachers as well as a staff of paid helpers.

          Hi Edward,
          I’m really sorry. It sounds like you have a good chance of qualifying based on the info you’ve shared. but you can find the SBA’s criteria as well as a link to apply here. Good luck to you!
