BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - FEMA announced on Wednesday that it is giving out an additional $1 million to help with Camp Fire recovery.

FEMA first started offering assistance when President Trump declared a major emergency for Butte County. 

Typically, the declaration calls for the federal government to cover 75 percent of the cost of the disaster. 

However, North State Congressman Doug LaMalfa rallied Congress to get FEMA to cover 90 percent of the cost of the Camp Fire, the same amount they provided for 9/11 recovery. 

LaMalfa issued the following statement about the funding: 

“From the very beginning of this disaster, the federal government has reacted swiftly to help our communities recover. Now that we’ve successfully increased the federal government’s cost share to 90 percent from the standard 75 percent for recovery efforts, FEMA is moving quickly to deliver the increased funds into Butte County. We still have a long way to go throughout Butte County to help people fully recover from this disaster. I’m pleased with the Administration for their full attention to our recovery efforts in Northern California.”
