Long Beach Disaster Relief Fund
The Long Beach Disaster Relief Fund (LBDRF) provides funding to approved 501(c)3 non-profit organizations, governmental, or educational institutions that provide disaster-related relief to Long Beach residents. Residents impacted by county, state, and federally declared disasters, such as the 2006 Paradise Gardens Apartment fire, the 2015 Downtown Power outage, and the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic are examples of grant eligibility from this fund.
Beginning in March 2020, LBDRF supported community-based organizations at the frontlines of the coronavirus response in the Long Beach area. Over $1.2 million was granted to groups that provided community members with food, rental assistance, critical expenses, sanitation supplies, and more. See the list of the grants awarded here.
