Message from the MARN Board of Directors

In response to the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, the MARN Board of Directors created the MARN COVID-19 RELIEF FUND to assist our members during this time of need. , MARN has sent out over fifty $250 micro grants to our members. Due to the overwhelming demand for this assistance, the initial round of funds has been depleted.   As more funds become available, MARN will continue processing applications received on a first come first serve basis. Lastly, we found that there were issues with some of our recipients using the electronic payment option through Zelle®. Going forward, MARN will be sending checks to all awarded recipients. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused. 

MARN would like to thank all our friends and donors who contributed to the great cause!

Thank you,
Board of Directors,
Milwaukee Artist Resource Network

 

Additional Resource Links

Here are a few links that may be of help during this time. Please let us know if you find other important information that could benefit our community and we will consider posting it here as well.

Helpful health links:

·  Stay up-to-date with information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), including informational videos.

·  See a list of Milwaukee's free and income-based clinics, some of which can provide care with or without insurance. Contact the clinics directly with any questions.

·  Milwaukee Community Care & Mutual Aid Sign-up: you can sign up to give or receive help in Milwaukee, WI. Together, we can make sure everyone in our community has what they need. Spanish version: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScZMTcIFkYO-RA0hTisozNPSq7FuzJiEuNmbiBGZaEYv-IW4w/viewform

Most of the CDC and government information has been in english and if you use the translate button sometimes it doesn’t translate everything or it’s very wrong. Because of that, 7 Latinx community organizers have created this Facebook page for Spanish speakers to get correct information. If you know Spanish speakers please share.

Another good resource to know about is the Milwaukee County Social Services Hotline. To connect by phone, dial 211 and folks can get help/info about an array of non-emergency things. For example, if you need to know information about food pantries in your zip codes, shelters, etc.
