The AGMA Relief Fund provides support and temporary financial assistance to members who are in need.
The American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA) contracts with The Actors Fund to administer this program nationally as well as to provide comprehensive social services.
Services include counseling and referrals for personal, family or work-related problems. Available resources include community programs for legal services, elder care, entitlement benefits and childcare. Workshops are offered on how to locate affordable housing and on financial education and health insurance options.
Financial assistance is available for rent, utilities, mental health and medical care, as well as other basic living expenses. Grants are made case-by-case, based on need.
