The Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund is a statewide relief fund to support Louisiana's music community who have lost income amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The collapse of the live music industry has affected not only musicians, but thousands of music industry workers and culture bearers who work alongside them. The pandemic has triggered a "domino effect" in the music sector with cancelled music events disrupting income for so many.
