Long Beach city officials launch a mobile pop-up service for small businesses providing PPE, laptops, wireless internet devices, printers, and COVID-19 grants.


How it works:

The 'BizCare' mobile pop-ups are accessible to all Long Beach small businesses and are focused on businesses impacted by the pandemic. The pop-ups give small businesses "free one-on-one, in-person support to complete grant applications and learn about other business and community resources, such as loans and free technical assistance."

  • Multilingual translation services are available on-site at each of the pop-ups.
