According to Nancy Pelosi, $35 million is essential for the Kennedy Center for battling the Coronavirus.

While $35 million is allocated to the Kennedy Center, Nancy Pelosi did not say it is essential.

While $35 million is allocated to the Kennedy Center, Nancy Pelosi did not say it is essential. According to the copy of the coronavirus stimulus bill, $35 million has been allocated to the Kennedy Center (John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts) to fight against the virus. The money will be used for operations and maintenance requirements related to the consequences of coronavirus, and the amount has to remain available until 30 September 2021. Moreover, the fund would also be used for operating expenses required to the continuity of the Kennedy Center and for employees to cover their compensations, benefits, grants, contracts, rent or utility payments, fees for artists or performers, information technology, and other administrative expenses.

The bill, unprecedented in its size and scope, also aims to flush the economy with capital by sending $1,200 checks to many Americans, creating a $367 billion loan program for small businesses and setting up a $500 billion fund for industries, cities and states.

However, there is no proof that Nancy Pelosi said that $35 million is essential for the Kennedy Center for battling the coronavirus. The wording was from a tweet by Ben Domenech, an American writer.
