Dear <<First Name>>,
 
Since taking office, I’ve been relentlessly focused on uplifting and protecting the most vulnerable Angelenos as we fight to build a more equitable and livable City.
 
The nation’s strongest COVID-19 eviction protections; covenanted low income housing in new developments; temporary and permanent housing solutions for people experiencing homelessness - I championed all of these policies and programs with this singular goal in mind.
 
This week, the City took a big leap forward in pursuit of this objective with the launch of its BIG:LEAP Program - the largest guaranteed basic income pilot program in the nation. 

Through this pilot program, more than 3,000 families who've experienced hardship due to the pandemic will be randomly selected to receive $1,000/month for one year. 

You are eligible to apply to this program if you meet the following criteria:

✅ Reside in the City of Los Angeles
✅ Are 18 years or older
✅ Income level at or below the federal poverty level
✅ Have at least one dependent child or are pregnant
✅ Experienced economic and/or medical hardship related to COVID-19
 
APPLY
Applicants have until Sunday, November 7 at 11:59pm to apply for this program. Please contact my office at (213) 207-3015 if you are having any difficulty applying or have questions. 

We are here to help.

Kind regards,

MITCH O'FARRELL
 

TEAM MITCH MAKING A DIFFERENCE

WESTLAKE - The Council District 13 Clean Team returned this week to Loma Place and Crown Hill Avenue to complete a major beautification project that involved the removal of large debris and overgrown vegetation. The result is a win for accessibility and greatly enhances the pedestrian experience for local residents. If you know of an area in need of similar help, please contact our District Office at (213) 207-3015.

NEW PUBLIC ART IN HOLLYWOOD

HOLLYWOOD - We're beautifying our public spaces in the Heart of Hollywood one mural at a time. On Sunday, Councilmember O'Farrell joined Arts Bridging the Gap, the Hollywood Partnership, local artist Alexandra Nechita and many volunteers to transform a barren wall at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue into a new mural with Cubist elements. Have a wall in mind? We are always looking to partner with community organizations and local residents on similar initiatives. Please reach out to us at (213) 207-3015!
