Entertainment Minister Olivia Grange has announced a J$90-million (one Jamaica dollar =US$0.008 cents) special support package for members of the entertainment, culture and creative industries.
“Effective immediately, the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport is accepting applications for “grants of $60,000 per individual,” Grange noted.
The entertainment minister thanked the Minister of Finance, Dr Nigel Clarke, for responding to her consistent representations on behalf of the Entertainment, Culture and Creative Industries.
“I think that the Entertainment, Culture and Creative Industries sector was probably greatly impacted more than any other sector and so it was necessary for us to see what we can do. Even now as the restrictions are eased, entertainment events are still restricted,” the Entertainment Minister said.
