Due to popular demand, the deadline to register for Councilmember Curren Price’s Annual Senior Appreciation Luncheon has been pushed back to Friday, Oct. 30. Older adults who live in District 9 and are 65 years and older can call Councilman Price’s District Office at (323) 846-2651 to participate in this year’s event.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Councilmember Price will treat local neighbors to a free meal and care package this year, which they can enjoy from the comfort of home.
“It brings me so much joy to gather more than 1,000 of our closest neighbors as part of our senior luncheon celebration at the Los Angeles Convention Center each year,” added Councilmember Price. “Unfortunately, we’re going to have to do things a little differently this year. While there won’t be any dancing or live entertainment, the safety of our senior community is our utmost priority so instead we’ll be delivering thousands of meals with treats in a safe manner.”
As the City of Los Angeles reels from the effects COVID-19 has taken on our daily lives, the need for trusted child care has become more important than ever. Licensed child care operators in the City of Los Angeles affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which have endured hardship or a reduction in revenue, can apply for grants of $10,000, $25,000 and $40,000. A total of 500 grants, totaling $10 million, will be awarded. The application portal opened Oct. 15 and will close on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 12 p.m.
This grant program is administered by the Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF) in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, Economic & Workforce Development Department (EWDD), the City’s BusinessSource Centers and multiple local early care and education agencies.

This program supplements two other new programs created by the department to help Angelenos in need — the Citation Amnesty Program and the Unemployment Citation Amnesty Program — and joins the Community Assistance Parking Program (CAPP) and the Low-Income Payment Plans Program as part of LADOT’s larger effort to assist Angelenos.
