Coachella Valley Venues Receive Millions Of Dollars In Relief

Almost $19 million in American Rescue Plan Funds have been distributed to theater venues and small businesses in the Coachella Valley area, it was announced Thursday.

Some of the Venues receiving funds: the Desert Theatreworks community theatre in Indio, which received nearly $250,000; the McCallum Theater in Palm Desert, which received $3.8 million; the Mary Pickford Theater in Cathedral City, which received $2.6 million; the Fox Cineplex in Banning, which received over $450,000; and the Palm Springs Air Museum, which received nearly $1 million.

These American Rescue Plan funds were received through the Shuttered Venue Operator Grant program, designed to help small business recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The American Rescue Plan’s expanded Shuttered Venue Operator Grant program is a lifeline for our local theatres and stages,” Ruiz said in a statement on Thursday. “Now, thanks to these vital funds, our economy and tourism are supported and jobs are retained for residents of the 36th District.”
