The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of California to supplement state, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by wildfires from October 8, 2017 and continuing.

Federal funding is available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work due to wildfires in Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Sonoma, and Yuba counties.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

William Roche has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area. Roche said additional designations may be made at a later date if warranted by the results of damage assessments.
