Health, Food Security and Slowing the Spread of COVID-19

#LACountyCARES

There’s nothing more important than protecting public health and making sure residents can put food on the table. Allocations in this category fund critical programs such as contact tracing; testing; public health surveillance and inspections; and quarantine and isolation housing for essential workers, medical caregivers and residents who have no place to shelter safely after exposure to or testing positive for COVID-19. Funding also supports grocery distribution programs that have served tens of thousands of households and the delivery of 1.9 million “Great Plates” meals to older adults.

Total allocation: $581.3 million
