ACNV COVID-19 Resource Center

ACNV COVID-19 Resource Center

This is Arts Council Napa Valley’s COVID-19 Resource Center. Here you will find up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 in the state and Napa County, and a list of resources for artists/organizations/businesses.

This Resource Center is being updated as information becomes available.


Napa County Status:

County Information: As of 3/29/2020, Napa County has confirmed four additional cases of COVID 19 for a total of 14 cases. All four cases are in the City of Napa. One had exposure to a previously confirmed case, one had exposure from travel outside the country, and two are in the same household. Isolation and quarantine orders are in place and Napa County Public Health is conducting its investigation.


County Virtual Local Assistance Center (LAC):

The LAC provides a consolidated list of state, county and community services to support you and your loved ones during this unprecedented time. As additional services become available, the LAC will continue to be updated.


ACNV Status:
Remote Operation until further notice.

Due to the social distancing protocols throughout the state and county, Arts Council Napa Valley’s 3299 Claremont Ave. office location will be closed until further notice. At this time, we will be operating remotely and working to keep our audience informed with updates, resources, and opportunities at this difficult time via our website and social media channels.

The best way to reach us will be via email- please email info@artscouncilnv.org, and we will answer as quickly as possible.


Ask the Governor For Relief:

As opportunities for federal and state relief become available, your elected officials will likely be key partners in helping you to gain access, so it is doubly important to tend to these relationships now by initiating a conversation on this topic. Californians for the Arts urges the arts community to let Governor Newsom know NOW about the impact COVID-19 has had on them.


Americans for the Arts and the Arts Action Fund are standing up for the arts in America during COVID-19!

Current Ask:

Request your members of Congress ensure Congress will include $4 billion—to be distributed though the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)—to help offset the losses of the nonprofit arts industry, and expand eligibility through additional federal programs to ensure artists, entrepreneurs, and small businesses in the creative economy can utilize business interruption relief.


CARES Act Information and Resources:

Congress just passed the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act”. Short-titled the CARES ACT, this emergency financial legislation was drafted by the Republicans in the U.S. Senate and has been circulated to the Democrats in both the House and the Senate and approved.

The “Small Business Rescue Plan” portion of the bill will provide:

  • $350 billion in loan forgiveness grants to small businesses and non-profits to maintain existing workforce and help pay for other expenses like rent, mortgage, and utilities.
  • $10 billion for SBA emergency grants of up to $10,000 to provide immediate relief for small business operating costs.
  • $17 billion for SBA to cover 6 months of payments for small businesses with existing SBA loans.
