The City of Los Angeles allocated American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to provide grants to eligible microenterprises and small businesses in need of economic support due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Comeback Checks Program will provide $5,000 grants to approximately 5,000 businesses in the City of Los Angeles. This page provides help with the most common questions about the program.
