Economic Relief Grants

Updated July 9, 2020

The City Council has assembled more than $.5 million in federal funds to provide direct relief to businesses and residents.  Please see below for an update on each program.  

  1. BUSINESS RELIEF
  2. RENTAL ASSISTANCE 

COVID-19 Emergency Small Business Grant Program

The City received 157 interest forms for the Small Business Grant Program.  City staff has reviewed all of the interest forms submitted before July 6 and will be contacting the first group of business owners this week that met the initial requirements.  If any of those businesses do not wish to participate or do not qualify, City staff will move on to the next group of businesses on the waiting list.

Given the limited federal funding, the City is no longer accepting interest forms for this program.  If your business needs financial assistance, the County of Los Angeles announced on July 7 the Los Angeles Region COVID-19 Fund that will provide grants to small businesses.  For more information visit www.lacovidfund.org.
