Deadline 15th May
PRS set up the Emergency Relief Fund in March, along with their partners at the PRS Members’ Fund and PRS Foundation to help their members in these extraordinary times. Over half the money available now has come from the PRS Members’ Fund, with other substantial donations coming from major industry companies and the general public.
The money is available to PRS members globally and will be offered in grants of up to £1,000 each, depending on need.
They’ve updated the eligibility criteria. You’re eligible to apply for the Emergency Relief Fund if:
- you’re a PRS writer member
- you’ve been a member since at least 1 January 2018
- since 1 January 2018, you’ve earned at least £500 in royalties (including the recent April 2020 distribution)
- you’re suffering genuine hardship from loss of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic
