LADWP Restarts In-Person Customer Programs Following Suspension Due to COVID-19
Starting today, June 28, 2021, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) will resume in-person services for several popular residential and commercial customer programs that were suspended in March 2020 as part of the department’s response to COVID-19 in order to protect the health and safety of customers, employees and contractors.

During the temporary suspension of in-person activity for select customer programs, LADWP continued to accept rebate submissions and program sign-ups.

As they resume the in-person portion of programs, LADWP remains committed to prioritizing safety. Employees and contractors performing work in customer homes and businesses will continue practicing safety protocols recommended by state and local agencies, including the use of personal protective equipment, social distancing and conducting temperature checks for symptom screening prior to heading out into the field to meet with customers.

Beautify LA Grants - Deadline June 30, 2021
The Board of Public Works, Office of Community Beautification (OCB) and Keep Los Angeles Beautiful (KLAB) have launched the KLAB Community Beautification Grant or Beautify LA Grant. The new grant program will support the efforts of community-based groups to beautify public spaces throughout Los Angeles and empower individuals to take personal action to improve their neighborhoods. Groups do not have to be official organizations - they can be as small as a constituent and their neighbors. More information can be found in the proposal packet available for download at http://laocb.org/beautify-la-grant/

The Beautify LA Grant is a competitive matching grant of up to $2,500 that will be awarded to selected community-based groups in the City of Los Angeles to fund exceptional neighborhood beautification projects that are designed to enhance the public spaces where they live, work, and play.

OCB and KLAB are now accepting proposals for the Beautify LA Grant until the submission deadline on Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
Help for Homeowners Webinar June 30th
As the federal protections begin to wind down, property owners and landlords could be left with months of mortgage debt if they don’t seek assistance through grant programs or make a payment arrangement with their lender.

Join us Wednesday at 2 p.m. as DCBA's Foreclosure Prevention counselors will provide a high-level overview of the California Foreclosure Process, provide information about available programs and where to go for free and reliable help.

LA County Eviction Moratorium Extended 
The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to extend the Los Angeles County Temporary Eviction Moratorium through September 30, 2021.

The moratorium, which was first put into effect March 2020, places a Countywide ban on evictions for residential tenants, commercial tenants, and mobilehome space renters.

The updated moratorium extends protection to commercial evictions; prohibits no-fault evictions, evictions for unauthorized occupants, pets, nuisances, or for tenants who reasonably deny entry to a landlord, if related to COVID-19.

LA Animal Services Offers Tips to Keep You and Your Pets Safe this 4th of July Holiday Weekend
Los Angeles, June 28, 2021 – The 4th of July and the days following are the busiest times at our six LA Animal Services Centers throughout the City. For many pets, the loud booming sounds and the flashing lights of fireworks can be terrifying for dogs and cats causing pets to escape their home or yard in an attempt to look for somewhere safe to hide. 
To help ensure Angelenos and their furry family members stay safe this holiday weekend, LA Animal Services teamed up with the Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles Police Department, and LA CityView 35 on a joint Public Service Announcement about the dangers illegal fireworks pose to residents and their pets.

Fireworks Are Illegal

The Los Angeles Police Department accepts illegal fireworks without penalty by calling the same number used to report them:
