Supporting Small Businesses During COVID-19: A Toolkit for Local Governments

As the spread of COVID-19 continues to intensify, local governments will need to implement innovative and effective solutions for small businesses across LA and Orange Counties — especially for the people and businesses in historically under-invested communities that are likely to suffer disproportionately due to the pandemic.

LISC LA has developed a toolkit, with funding from Wells Fargo, that offers several small business policy agenda ideas and innovative solutions for local governments to consider. Compiled through in-depth research and reports from LISC LA’s dozens of community-based partners on the front lines of this crisis, the toolkit includes seven immediate recommendations for mitigating the impact of the pandemic.
