Who is eligible for Angeleno Card Assistance?
Households must meet all three of the following criteria to be eligible for assistance through the Angeleno Card initiative:
- Households in the City of Los Angeles;
- Households with total annual incomes that fell below the federal poverty level prior to the COVID-19 crisis; and
- Households that have fallen into deeper economic hardship during the crisis because at least one household member has lost a job or experienced a reduction in income of at least 50%.
We will not ask for immigration status, nor is it considered in determining eligibility. This initiative is funded by private donations and is not a City program. Any assistance through this fund is not considered a public benefit and is not subject to the Public Charge rule.
Here is a link to this chart posted on Legal Aid at Work's website that can be shared. The list will be updated on a weekly basis. If you know of a relief fund that is open to undocumented workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, please email the information to email@example.com.

- Los Angeles Public Library Resources - Click for Info
While all Los Angeles Public Library locations are physically closed, you can still access our online resources. All LAUSD students are automatically assigned a Student Success Card. That means that they can use their cards to access ALL our online resources, so long as you have your library card number and PIN (you don’t need the physical card).
If a student doesn't have a physical library card and doesn't know their PIN, they can email us to verify the student’s name, address and school, and we’ll look up their library card number and PIN.
Having trouble using your Student Success Card online? Try these tips!
- Make sure you are accessing our digital items either through our website (lapl.org) or using our name, Los Angeles Public Library, in the e-media app. Our name is very similar to the Los Angeles County Public Library, so many people make that mistake.
- Make sure you are using your library card number (including “SSC” with no dashes or spaces) and PIN, the last four digits of the telephone number in your account. It might be an older number than you expect.
- If you still cannot log in, please fill out the form by clicking the link below for assistance.

- Local and Convenient Child Care Options - Click fo Info
Governor Gavin Newsom today announced a new portal to help parents, including essential workers and vulnerable families, find safe, reliable and accessible child care options.
“Our essential workers deserve to go to work knowing their kids are safe and cared for,” said Governor Newsom. “They’re there for our families, keeping hospitals, grocery stores and schools open during this pandemic. We need to be there for them. Our new portal will make accessing child care easier by allowing parents to find options that are convenient and reliable for their families.”
The new portal is available at covid19.ca.gov/childcare and enables parents to enter their location and the type of care they need, instantly receiving a list of local center-based and family child care programs. The list of open licensed child care programs will include health and safety information, age of children accepted, capacity, availability, hours, and contact information for the program and local Child Care Resource and Referral agency. The Child Care Resource and Referral agencies can answer general questions, including those about child care subsidies.
The Governor has made child care a priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 16, the Department of Social Services (DSS) released guidance allowing for the fast tracked roll out of temporary employer sponsored child care to ensure that child care services are available for working families in need while schools are physically closed. DSS is available to help communities statewide with technical assistance to set up pop-up child care programs. As of today, there are 432 temporary pop-up child care programs throughout California.
On April 10, thanks to swift action from the Legislature to pass SB 89, the Governor allocated $50 million for child care vouchers which prioritize children at risk of abuse, neglect or exploitation, as well as children of essential workers under 85 percent of the State Medium Income. An additional $50 million will go toward child care facility cleaning and provides reimbursements for child care providers to purchase gloves, face coverings, cleaning supplies and labor. Checks are now being processed by the State Controller’s Office and should be received in the next few weeks.
Today’s announcement follows previous announcements by the Governor to support essential workers and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor signed two executive orders in early April creating licensing and contracting flexibility and expanding access to child care subsidies and after-school programs for essential workers.
