High Desert Museum, Pendleton Round-Up Get State COVID-19 Relief Money

SALEM, O0R -- The Legislature’s emergency board approves $50 million dollars to keep Oregon cultural and community organizations going during covid-19 forced closures. Half of the money goes directly to several events and venues, including the Shakespeare festival in Ashland, the Pendelton Roundup, and the High Desert Museum here in Central Oregon. The rest of the money, nearly $26 million dollars, will go to all Oregon counties for distribution. The money can be used for covid-19 impacted venue’s rent, mortgage or utilities.
