BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Members of the Camp Fire Business Recovery Task Force gave an update to the Butte County Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

Nor-Tech, the Alliance for Workforce Development, 3-Core, Butte College Small Business Association and SBA each approached the podium providing information on their efforts.

Butte County Public Information Officer Casey Hatcher said these groups have helped people reopen or relocate their businesses after the fire. 

"From getting them infrastructure or water that they need to operate in the town to finding a new place to locate in the city of Chico or Oroville so they could reopen," Hatcher said. "It's really been a variety. There's been a lot of calls coming in for businesses and there's been a lot of employees who've filed unemployment claims so we're really trying to provide a wide variety of services." 

The Alliance for Workforce Development has helped more than 300 businesses. The group received $15 million for a dislocated worker grant.

Hatcher said this helps to put people affected by the Camp Fire back to work. The organization hopes to serve 700 employees.
