Emergency Financial Assistance

Mayor's Fund Los Angeles

The Angeleno Campaign

Goal Statement

To prevent families from falling into economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 crisis.

Need

It is critical that we prevent more families from falling into crisis during this time. Even if the federal government comes through with funding for individuals, it will be weeks or more before money flows, and federal rules will exclude too many Angelenos from assistance.

Eligiblity Requirements

The Angeleno Campaign is aimed at helping low-wage, hourly workers who had jobs in homes and restaurants, seasonal workers, and other precarious workers such as day laborers, street vendors, or self-employed individuals who are experiencing economic hardship because of the COVID-19 crisis.

Applicants must:

  • Reside in the City of Los Angeles and be able to prove identity/address with a valid California Driver’s License, California Identification Card, tenant lease agreement, or postmarked mail.
  • Demonstrate severe economic hardship caused by COVID-19 and fall under the income guidelines in Table 1, which are based on the Federal Poverty Level.
  • Acceptable documents include but are not limited to the following:
    • Lay-off Letter
    • Unemployment Insurance Benefit Denial Letter
    • Proof of ineligibility for Public Benefits (ex: CalFresh, CalWORKS, Gen. Relief)
    • Name of Employer and Contact Number to Verify Unemployment
    • 2019 W-2 Form and/or 2019 or 2020 Tax Returns

Grocery Card Relief

The City’s 16 FamilySource Centers, which are operated by vetted non-profits, will assess applicants and provide families with grocery cards of $300 for 1-2 family members per household and $500 for 3 or more family members per household.
