Funds available for homeowners impacted by wildfires

The state of California has grants available to assist individuals with long-term housing recovery needs resulting from the 2017 and 2018 wildfires.

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) received Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBGDR) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a result of the 2017 disasters. HCD works with local governments and organizations to fund programs that provide long-term recovery assistance for housing, infrastructure, and economic revitalization. CDBG-DR provides funds for long-term disaster recovery.

The program is moving into the application phase this spring. The first step for potential applicants is to complete an online survey to determine individual eligibility. Those who are qualified will be invited to complete an application.
