Eligible Humboldt County homeowners in areas impacted by the Dec. 20, 2022 earthquake can now apply for Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) grants of up to $3,000 to safeguard their homes against future earthquake damage. These funds cannot be used to pay for repairs to damaged homes but can be used to protect eligible residences from experiencing the same kind of damage from future earthquakes.

Income-eligible homeowners may also qualify for supplemental grants. These grants are available for households with an income at or below $72,080 and may be able to provide up to 100% of the funds needed to cover a seismic retrofit.

Humboldt County homeowners can apply for retrofit funding at At this website, homeowners can check if their house is in an EBB eligible ZIP Code, review detailed program information and begin searching for a FEMA-trained, California-licensed general contractor.

The registration period for this program closes on Monday, July 31. Please visit to learn more.

 The CERC is a group of business and economic support organizations from the government, business, and non-profit sectors that meet to share updates, coordinate resources, and ensure consistent communications to our community’s businesses and the public at large. 

We do this via a twice-per-week Zoom call that features special speakers and project updates. We’ve have been meeting since March 2020.
