BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte Strong Fund has awarded 17 grants totaling more than $800,000 for Camp Fire recovery.

The grants were approved Friday, Aug. 16, at a meeting of the Butte Strong Fund grant committee.

The program was established in early 2019 and provides funding for eligible organizations or local government entities that are directly serving people affected by the Camp Fire.

The largest grant was $203,767 to support the Roadmap to Recovery Program by United Policyholders. The grant will help United Policyholders continue its Roadmap to Recovery Program, which includes free public meetings and workshops as well as individual consultations. The program helps with insurance settlements.

The fund also gave grants to Butte 2-1-1 which helps with emergency financial assistance. This will allow Butte 2-1-1 to process and verify up to 200 emergency financial assistance applications for distribution of direct assistance funds to Camp Fire survivors who have verified the need for immediate financial support.

Another grant went out to The Boys and Girls Club and the Jesus Center to hire disaster case managers.

A hot week will transform into an even hotter weekend over northern California as high pressure stays in control of our weather. No rain is in the forecast, but it will cool a bit by late next week.
