Program Description

The American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA) Relief Fund provides support and temporary financial assistance to members who are in need.  AGMA contracts with The Actors Fund to administer this program nationally as well as to provide comprehensive social services.

Services include counseling and referrals for personal, family or work-related problems. Linkage is made to community resources for legal services, elder care, entitlement benefits and childcare.  Workshops are offered on how to locate affordable housing, as well as on financial education and health insurance options.

Financial assistance is available for rent, utilities, mental health and medical care, as well as other basic living expenses. Grants are made case-by-case, based on need.


All AGMA members may call The Actors Fund for information, referrals and access to our social services.

To be eligible for financial assistance from the AGMA Relief Fund a member must be:

  • In good standing or on honorable withdrawal
