The Marion Cultural Alliance is scrambling to help artists who are struggling amid the COVID-19 crisis.

The group has allocated $10,000 from the Four Friends Grant Fund to provide artists with up to $500 for personal relief to help offset the loss of income during the pandemic, which has forced the cancellation of various shows and gigs because of the need for social distancing.

Applications are available online at mcaocala.org. Applicants must live in Ocala/Marion County.
