Helping the Tybee Post Theater survive the pandemic, the Georgia Council for the Arts has given the nonprofit a $15,000 grant, theater officials have announced.
The so-called “resiliency grant” pays for ongoing expenses by the historic theater since it closed in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic and began rescheduling dozens of concerts, movies and other entertainment for fall or next year,
It comes on top of a federal loan/grant of $24,500 that the theater received in April – also because of the pandemic. That loan which is administered U.S. Small Business Administration through its Paycheck Protection Program “is expected to be forgiven, thereby making it a grant,” said theater officials in a July 9 press release.
