supporting measures covid-19

Additional subsidy resources have been made available for the institutions supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL for several years as part of the minister’s support package in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. These funds are intended to partly compensate for the loss of income as a result of the covid crisis. The aim of the support package is to maintain the vital chain components in the Dutch cultural infrastructure, in order to preserve the unique Dutch artistic product and to guarantee employment in the cultural and creative sector. The distribution of these resources is regulated in the Regeling aanvullende ondersteuning meerjarig gesubsidieerde instellingen COVID-19 V. The subsidy ceiling is € 1,263,600.
