COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
COVID-19 EMERGENCY SMALL BUSINESS GRANT PROGRAM
The City received 157 interest forms for the Small Business Grant Program. Per the established criteria City staff informed all the eligible businesses in the first tier and randomly selected businesses in second tier. Staff anticipates issuing checks to the qualified businesses before the end of the month.
Given the limited federal funding, the City is no longer accepting interest forms for this program. If you know of a business that needs financial assistance, starting on August 31 the County of Los Angeles will begin their fourth round of the Los Angeles Region COVID-19 that will provide grants to small businesses.
