BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Grants are now available to help reduce construction costs for people who want to build a new home in the Camp Fire burn scar, whether they used to live in the burned-out areas or not. 

The funds will be able to help with pre-construction costs for lower-income, lower-middle-class and middle-class households. Available funds can be used for conducting land surveys, repairing and inspecting wells, conducting water fire-flow tests and for the installation of water back-flow devices, and for architecture and engineering related expenses.

The funding will be provided as part of the "Missing Middle Grant" program which has been introduced by the Rebuild Paradise Foundation.

All grant applications must comply with particular income guidelines in order to be funded.

Applicants need to apply AFTER a building permit is submitted, but not before. The building permits have to be submitted on or after Feb. 18, 2020.

The money for the covered items and services can be reimbursed from receipts paid before the building plan is submitted.

Major funding for this grant program has come from a partnership with the American Red Cross, Tri-Counties Bank and numerous private individual donors.

The targeted grant, will reimburse for the following expenses related to pre-construction;

   - Up to $1,000 for survey’s

   - Up to $1,000 for access to water (back-flow devices, fire-flow tests, well inspections, well repairs)

   - Up to $2,000 for architecture & engineering related expenses

A spokesperson for the RebuildParadise Foundation said their "Missing Middle Grant" aligns with their Foundation’s mission to impact,  attract, retain and incentivize the repopulation of residents to Butte County’s disaster-affected areas.
