Assistance Limitations

When financial assistance is provided by MusiCares, it is charitable in nature and therefore, before seeking such assistance, applicants are required to investigate all other possible sources of aid.  All approved assistance is paid directly to a creditor/third party.  At its sole discretion, MusiCares reserves the right to deny or approve financial assistance.
