MONEY FOR OUR VULNERABLE ANGELINOS!
Garcetti just announced a relief fund for households in the City of Los Angeles (individuals or families) whose income was below the poverty line pre-COVID-19, and whose income has fallen lower since the crisis. These people can get $700-$1500 of survival money through an Angelino Card: a no-fee debit card provided gratis by the city to those in need.
If you or someone you know fits this criteria, they can apply starting Wednesday morning at https://hcidla.lacity.org.
