MusiCares Foundation was established in 1989 and incorporated in 1993[1] by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Meant for musicians to have a place to turn in times of financial, personal, or medical crisis, its primary purpose is to focus the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues which directly impact the health and welfare of the music community. The foundation's programs include emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery, outreach and leadership activities, and senior housing.[4][5]

In September 2004, MusiCares acquired the Musicians Assistance Program, a similar program assisting musicians in need, including drug rehabilitation.[6]

Stevie Ray Vaughan Award

To help raise funding for the program, a MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert is held annually since 2005. Among the awards given at the event is the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award, named after the late guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, which recognizes musicians for their devotion to helping other addicts struggling with the recovery process.[7] Eric Clapton was honored with the Musicians' Assistance Program's first Stevie Ray Vaughan Award on November 2, 1999.[8]
