[UPDATED: 5/13/22]

As people around the world are coping with the coronavirus pandemic, companies, nonprofits, and other government and non-government organizations are stepping up to help those in need. For filmmakers, actors, and other creatives in the U.S. uncertain about how to sustain their livelihoods during (and after) the pandemic, we wanted to highlight some resources that may be able to help. In addition to aid resources, filmmakers can find information on production COVID safety protocols below, including state-specific info.
