The City of Carson is offering a one-time Business Assistance Grant to businesses in Carson who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Carson Business Assistance Program is available to Carson businesses located with the City of Carson boundaries who have fewer than fifty (50) employees.

The Carson Business Assistance Program is made possible from Community Development Block Supplemental Grant (CDBG), a federally funded grant under the Cares Act. The grant funds do not have to be repaid. While the CDBG supplemental grant could have been used for other purposes, the Carson City Council unanimously decided to dedicate $306,729 of the CDBG funding for the Carson Business Assistance Program. The City has partnered with the Carson Community Economic Development Association (CCEDA) to assist businesses who meet the application process’ pre-eligibility criteria.

“We want our businesses to thrive especially during this difficult time. The City wants our businesses to know that we are all in this together,” said Carson Mayor Albert Robles. “I hope that Carson can create more opportunities such as this to assist our businesses.”

For additional information on qualification requirements and for more information on how to apply, please contact the CCEDA at (213) 348-7504 or This link includes the application and guidelines detailing the required documentation. Only applications with all supporting documentation will be accepted and reviewed for eligibility to receive funds. Funds are limited; therefore, not all applicants will receive funding.

Applications will be reviewed on a first come first served basis.
