LA County’s Economic Opportunity Grant Program is closed as of Wednesday May 31st. 

Please join our mailing list here to be notified of future potential grant opportunities.

The LA County Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) will disburse over $54 million across 6,800 grants for small and microbusinesses and nonprofit agencies through the new Economic Opportunity Grants Program (EOG), prioritizing the most COVID-impacted regions and organizations in LA County. Eligible grantees may be awarded between $2,500 and $25,000 in a phased roll out through the EOG.

EOG combines the California Microbusiness COVID-19 Relief Grant with four American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grant programs – Keep LA Dining, LA Regional COVID-19 Relief Funds for Small and Microbusinesses, LA Regional COVID-19 Relief Funds for Nonprofits, and Youth Workforce Development Partnerships. DEO has partnered with Lendistry to create the application portal and L.A.’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) to provide outreach and application assistance. SBDC has further contracted with small, hyperlocal organizations to ensure the EOG reaches those that need the grant relief most to recover from the pandemic.
