LB CARES Grant Program

On December 22, 2020, The Laguna Beach City Council established the LB CARES grant program to assist local restaurants, bars, and retail establishments during this Stay-at-Home Order. Under the program, Laguna Beach restaurants and bars can receive $5,000, retailers that had to close can receive $3,000, and retailers that had to reduce their capacity can receive $2,000 on a first come, first served, basis. Click here for more information about the LB CARES grant program.

The LB CARES grant application closed on January 5, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. for retail stores, and has been extended until January 19 for restaurants and bars. Please note, the City utilizes the third-party service Slide Room for receiving applications. You may need to create an account with Slide Room before submitting the application. 

For assistance with the LB CARES Grant, contact Senior Administrative Analyst Jeremy Frimond, in the City Manager's Office, at (949) 464-6673 or by email at jfrimond@lagunabeachcity.net
