The City of Industry intends to support local businesses and the local workforce by assisting with the cost of purchase and/or rental of portable canopies, barriers, chairs, tables, umbrellas, hand washing and sanitizing stations (“resources”) for temporary outdoor operations during the public health emergency.
The City has established a grant program to assist local businesses with the costs associated with outdoor business operations. Below are highlights of the program:

· Businesses can now apply for this grant multiple times within the reimbursement limits.
