Hogan Gives $10M in COVID Relief to Live Entertainment Venues

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has awarded $10 million in assistance to live entertainment venues and promoters statewide affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

“As we continue to move forward in our recovery, I am proud to announce more support for these entertainment businesses and venues are part of our Maryland Strong Economic Recovery Initiative,” the Republican governor said in a statement Wednesday. “These awards protect jobs and preserve important cultural institutions in Maryland communities ready to get back to normal.”

The $10 million is in addition to $30 million awarded earlier this year to music and entertainment venues as part of the state’s economic recovery plan.

The awards — ranging from $1,235 to $247,039 — will be distributed to 63 venues and promoters, including Prince George’s Cultural Arts Foundation and the Coalition for African Americans in the Performing Arts.

Montgomery County venues include the Strathmore, The Fillmore and the Adventure, Olney and Round House theaters.
