CALIFORNIA - PG&E picked its administrator for the $105 million Wildfire Assistance program.
On May 22, PG&E announced that the Wildfire Assistance Program was created to provide relief for people displaced by the 2017 Northern California wildfires and the Camp Fire.
The administrator, Cathy Yanni, is responsible for determining eligibility requirements and distribution for the funds.
Yanni can also enlist third parties within the affected communities to help with the fund distribution.
She started working with the alternative dispute resolution provider, JAMS, in 1998.
Alternative dispute resolution providers help people to resolve disputes, such as the distribution of funds, without a trial.
PG&E says Yanni has settled thousands of claims in her organization, included claims from the 2007 San Diego wildfires.
