Project Description

Butte County was granted up to $1 million, in installments, to provide services for families in the Camp Fire emergency shelter at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico, the last emergency shelter operating in the aftermath of the Camp Fire. Case workers identified families who were displaced by the Camp Fire yet were not eligible for aid because they were precariously housed before. The county’s potential solutions included providing rental assistance to work with families and other possibilities. The remainder of the grant can be used by the county for other unmet needs of fire victims.
