To help combat some of the financial strain impacting local artists and cultural organizations, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (MOCA) distributed $5 million to artists, cultural organizations, music venues and musicians.

MOCA, in collaboration with Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) and Mid-America Arts Alliance (MAAA), successfully distributed federal CARES funds to 691 recipients.

A total of 226 artists, 308 musicians, 36 music venues, and 121 arts and cultural organizations received support.

A majority of recipients reported that their artistic practice makes up their primary source of income, making these funds critical.

The organizations and music venues that received awards are listed below.
