BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – FEMA has announced a 12-month extension of the temporary housing program in Butte County through May 12, 2021, for Camp Fire survivors.
Originally, the program was set to conclude May 12, 2020.
Since the 2018 Camp Fire, FEMA has provided temporary housing for 684 displaced Butte County families, FEMA said in a press release Friday.
In partnership with the Cal OES and local partners, nearly 300 families have found a permanent housing solution, according to FEMA.
The remaining residents in FEMA temporary housing units will receive notification of the Direct Housing Program extension and their individual case will be discussed with a housing advisor from FEMA.
FEMA said they have provided $84.1 million in grants to Camp Fire survivors for rent, home repairs, and personal property loss.
