In September, I sponsored the Save Austin’s Vital Economic Sectors (SAVES) resolution that directed staff to identify any unexplored funding opportunities to support live music and arts venues, restaurants and bars, and child care providers.
Staff proposed three funds: the Austin Music Venue Preservation Fund, the Austin Legacy Business Relief Grant, and the Austin Childcare Provider Relief Grant. Staff also proposed $5 million in assistance for each fund, for a total of $15 million.
