COVID-19 NYC RESOURCE KIT

Editor’s Note: The following list of resources was forwarded to UP Magazine by J.T. Liss.

The resources compiled here center part-time and freelance NYC artists, educators, service workers, and others impacted by cancellations in the face of COVID-19.

We’re wishing everyone health and safety during these turbulent times. Rest in Peace to Nic707, an OG who passed away due to Covid-19 recently. Read an obituary about Nic707 at Bowery Boogie.
