Four live music venues in Sutherland Shire will receive an injection of funds through a state government support program during COVID-19.
The venues are El Sol and the The Brass Monkey at Cronulla, The Vinyl Room at Gymea and 3 Doors Down at Menai
The funding amounts are considered "commercial in confidence" and were not revealed.
A total of 162 businesses throughout the state have benefited from the government's $24 million Live Music Support Package, which supports venues that have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 restrictions over the past year.
Cronulla MP and Attorney-General Mark Speakman said the shire venues were "an important creative and cultural part of the local visitor economy".
"Cronulla is home to some excellent live music venues and this program is delivering targeted support to help them get back on their feet after an extremely difficult year," he said in a statement."
Heathcote MP Lee Evans said: "It's great to see this substantial investment in grassroots live music".
Miranda MP Eleni Petinos said: "The Live Music Support Package is a vital lifeline for tens of thousands of people across our state".
"Recipients can use funding for operational costs, which could include employing musicians and support crew," she said."
The statement said applications were assessed by an industry and NSW Government inter-agency panel and funding allocated based on the size of individual venues, and whether the venue operates exclusively for live music or whether live music forms a significant part of the venue operations.
The Live Music Support Package is part of the NSW Government's $51.5 million Tourism Support Package, providing funding to sectors engaged in the NSW visitor economy that have been hit hardest by the pandemic.
The fund is administered by Destination NSW in partnership with Create NSW and the Office of the 24-hour Economy Commissioner.
