CHICO, Calif. – FEMA has approved the state of California’s request for a six-month direct housing assistance extension for victims of the Camp Fire, Congressman Doug LaMalfa announced. 

LaMalfa previously had asked FEMA for this extension.

“Today’s extension of temporary housing assistance was the right decision by FEMA as we continue recovering from the most destructive fire in California’s history," LaMalfa said. "I’m thankful to FEMA for granting this request. I hope the Biden Administration will work with my office to keep Camp Fire survivors and the entire Ridge on a steady pathway back to normal.”

FEMA’s approval of a partial extension of direct temporary housing assistance is through September 12, 2021.

All eligible occupants who remain in FEMA Transportable Temporary Housing Units (TTHU) will be charged rent beginning June 1, 2021, during the extension period, according to FEMA. Prior to the end of the period of assistance, FEMA will give a 30-day written notice of the requirement to pay monthly rent to occupants remaining in a FEMA TTHU after the current period of assistance ends. FEMA said it has pledged to work with occupants to determine the amount of rent within their financial ability, up to the HUD Fair Market Rent (FMR). This amount will be based on each household’s income and current housing expenses.

The weather will be pulling a 180 as we head into the evening hours and kick off our work week.

Gusts between 25-35mph are possible from late this evening through Monday night for the valley while the foothills and the Sierra will continue to see the windy conditions through Tuesday morning. This has prompted a Red Flag Warning for the Valley 11pm tonight through 8pm Monday while the Sierra and Foothills will last through Tuesday morning.
