Artists and art mediators can due to COVID-19 apply for a support by the KSVF (Künstler_innen-Sozialversicherungsfonds) if the following applies to them:
- you cannot supported by the hardship fund of the Austrian Chamber of Commerce
- you have your main registration in Austria
- you are in economic terms significantly hit by COVID-19, that means you can no longer cover your running costs
- you are not applicable for benefits by any insurance to cover for the implications due to COVID-19
- you have not already received other funding by KSVF
Furthermore you income has to be lower than 51.552 Euro. In case you don’t have a income tax declaration (yet), you have to estimate your income on a yearly basis. If your income is lower than 6.ooo Euro you will get 500 Euro. The maximum amount funded is 1.000 Euro.
