Grant eligibility requires at least one of my employees hold a low-or moderate income job. What does this mean?

A low-to-moderate job is one that pays a salary less or equal than 80 percent of the low-moderate median household income as defined by the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. This depends on the number of persons in the employee’s household. For a  single individual, the low to moderate income level is at or below $63,100 annually; 80 percent of this amount is $50,480. For maximum income limits for households of more than one person, refer to the 2020 CDBG income guidelines for Los Angeles County, see Business Recovery Program policy for income details.
