The debit card is intended to provide cash assistance to some of the lowest-income Los Angeles residents hit hard by the pandemic.

Grants are given in the amounts of $700, $1,100 or $1,500, depending on income and household size.

Others who also wish to donate to help more Angelenos may do so through the Mayor's Fund for Los Angeles.
