$101 million in grants go to Hawaii arts, entertainment – Honolulu Star

It wasn’t easy to get, but over $100 million in federal aid has been received by independent players in Hawaii’s arts and entertainment industry stung by COVID-19 impacts.

The U.S. Small Business Administration touted a major national milestone Tuesday for its Shuttered Venue Operators Grants program after a troubled start in April, saying that so far $7.5 billion in grant money aimed at small, independent arts and entertainment industry operators has flowed to over 10,000 nationwide recipients from an available $16 billion.

In Hawaii, 68 grants totaling $101 million have gone to businesses, organizations and government entities that include performing arts organizations, museums, theater operators and event producers, according to SBA data.
