The Los Angeles Latino Chamber of Commerce (LALCC) is excited to share with our members the return of the Elevate Together Cash Grants program. For 2023, we will have two rounds for grant opportunities.
Thanks to our partnership with ODP Corporation (parent company of Office Depot) and United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) the initiative helps support Black and Hispanic small businesses with five or less employees.

This grant offers small- and medium-sized businesses in California an opportunity to grow their operations and create job opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The program is designed to cover new hire costs, including advertising, onboarding, training and first month’s wages. Grants are available in amounts ranging from $20,000 to $200,000. Businesses must qualify with the California Department of Rehabilitation which will create a contract that determines the schedule for funding reimbursement.
Our program helps small businesses thrive by offering free and quick online business courses on marketing, finance, efficiency and more, as well as networking and expert coaching. Grant application is now open. Register for Digital Ready, complete any combination of two courses, coaching events, and community events, and apply by May 12, 2023.
