Live Venue Grant
The Live Event Support Industries Program is administered by Business Oregon, the state’s economic development agency. The Oregon legislature allocated Business Oregon federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Funds for the purpose of supporting live event support industry service providers negatively impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency. This Program will provide up to $10 million in grant assistance to qualifying applicants that have experienced financial hardships as an outcome of public health measures necessitated by the COVID-19 public health emergency.
The grant can be awarded to those that plan/deliver live events and most businesses that support live events (catering, audio-visual, equipment rentals, security, speciality entertainers, portable toilets, photographers, planners and more).
