CARES Act Non-Profit Relief Grant and Telehealth License Grant

The CARES Act Non-Profit Relief Grant will support existing Long Beach non-profits experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. Eligible non-profits may apply for grants that provide working capital to maintain their operations and enable them to continue to provide services to the community. 

The CARES Act Telehealth License Grant is for Long Beach non-profit mental health agencies to subscribe to a telehealth license to administer mental health services over an online platform. This will increase mental health access to Long Beach residents who are uninsured or underinsured while adhering to Safer-At-Home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonprofits must currently lack a telehealth subscription.
