Open Enrollment Starts for California Earthquake Brace and Bolt Retrofitting Grant
If you live in California and are in need of earthquake retrofitting, you may be able to qualify for the Earthquake Brace and Bolt (EBB) program through California.
The program offers $5 million to residents in 395 eligible zip codes across California. These zip codes are chosen by the state based on their seismic risk.
Since the program first launched in 2013, the Earthquake Brace and Bolt program has helped more than 15,000 homeowners pay for their home retrofitting costs with their grants.
“Bolting houses to their foundations and bracing the crawl space walls can help Californians protect their families, their homes and their investments,” Janiele Maffei, chief mitigation officer of the California Earthquake Authority, said to CBS in a statement.”
In fact, households earning less than or equal to $72,080 a year may qualify for additional grants through the state which may cover the entire costs of the retrofitting.
“We’re pleased to extend additional support to income-eligible homeowners to help cover up to 100% of the cost of a seismic retrofit, and we encourage all eligible homeowners in EBB ZIP Codes to apply for funding now,” Maffei said.
