LA County Economic Opportunity Grant Program Opens Thursday

Palmdale – The LA County Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) will disburse over $54 million across 6,800 grants for microbusinesses, small businesses, and non-profit agencies negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic through the Economic Opportunity Grants Program (EOG), with Phase Two launching Thursday, Feb. 23.

For Phase Two, grants of $15,000 are available for microbusinesses earning under $100,000 in revenue in either 2019, 2020, or 2021. This phase excludes businesses in the City of Los Angeles. 

Visit for complete eligibility details and information on how to apply.

Phase One grant applications for Microbusinesses in LA County are open now, with grants starting at $2,500. Eligibility includes for-profit businesses with less than $50,000 for the 2019 taxable year, operating since at least December 2019, located in the County of Los Angeles, with five or fewer full-time employees, and negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sponsored by the County of Los Angeles, the EOG program Phase One will only allow microbusinesses that have been the hardest hit in the pandemic to apply for a $2,500 grant opportunity. 

Phase One will provide more than 4,000 grants to microbusinesses throughout the County of Los Angeles, including the City of Los Angeles, facing barriers to capital resources. 

Phase Two, opening Feb. 23, offers an additional 2,500 grants to microbusinesses, small businesses, and non-profits.

LA County DEO will only provide EOG funding where it can be reasonably determined and documented that the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted the business.
