Los Angeles City Councilmember Curren Price awarded $5.5 million in grants that will support nearly 100 organizations working in District 9. Recipients of the first ever CD 9 Community Grant Program include non-profits, churches, neighborhood councils, schools, health care organizations and other community-based organizations.
In 2020, Councilmember Price led the charge to reimagine $150 million from the police department and invest more resources into Black and Brown communities. As part of the Community Reinvestment Plan, Councilman Price implemented the nation’s largest Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) pilot in the nation, launched a neighborhood cleanup initiative, established a nonprofit apprenticeship program and created the CD 9 Community Grant Program.
