PARADISE, Calif. - Destroyed or damaged homes by the Camp Fire may be eligible for a grant of up to $200,000, according to the ReCoverCA.

Households with low-to-moderate-income will receive priority for the grant.

ReCoverCA is launching a new housing program for survivors who are rebuilding in the Camp Fire burn scar.

The California Department of Housing and Community Development announced the Disaster Housing Assistance Survey has opened for survivors of the 2018 wildfire disasters.

Survivors need to start by taking the survey in order to determine if they are eligible for the ReCoverCA Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Program.

ReCoverCA said survivors who are interested in the program will be served by locally hired case managers. The case managers will help applicants through the entire process by serving as an expert in the web-based survey and application.

Applicants can call or schedule a call with case managers so the applicant’s information can be entered into a survey or application.

Those who are eligible for the grant must:

  • Have legally owned and occupied a home in an affected county as their primary residence during the disasters.
  • Sustained damages as a direct result of one of the eligible disasters
  • To be in need of outstanding repairs
  • Be up to date on property taxes or have an approved payment plan or tax exemption

We've had a mostly sunny valley with a few more clouds over the mountains today, but it's been another beautiful day with warmer highs than yesterday. Much warmer weather is headed our way this weekend... enjoy, but stay cool!
