Since 1998, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic (NOMC) has been dedicated to keeping New Orleans' performers alive in body, mind, and spirit by providing comprehensive health care and mental health/social services. As the "medical home" for more than 2,500 local musicians and tradition bearers, the NOMC's Culture of Caring Model provides cost-efficient access to high quality healthcare and wellness programs for our patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
The New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation (NOMAF) evolved from NOMC following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to expand its mission and promise to keep New Orleans music alive by sustaining New Orleans' traditional music cultures through our Gig Fund and our Emergency Fund.

Based on the vital need for financial stability among members of New Orleans’ world-renowned brass bands, the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation has created the Brass Tacks program.
Brass Tacks is a pilot program aimed at aiding those in need of “financial fitness” by providing individual consultation, mentorship and social services to ensure stability of the brass band culture.
Visit the BRASS TACKS page on the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation’s website to learn more.
