  • FEMA Updates Flood Maps in Imperial, Riverside and San Diego Counties
    FEMA Updates Flood Maps in Imperial, Riverside and San Diego Counties

    OAKLAND, Calif. — The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is updating portions of Imperial, Riverside and San Diego County flood maps in 2021. The new maps identify the current flood hazards in the Oasis drainage area located west and northwest of the Salton Sea that help building officials, contractors and homeowners make effective mitigation decisions, thereby contributing to safer and more resilient communities.

    Before the new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) become effective, there is a 90-day appeal period from Feb. 25, 2021 to May 26, 2021. During that time, residents with technical and scientific information, such as detailed hydraulic or hydrologic data, can appeal the flood risk information on the preliminary maps. View the preliminary FIRMs at fema.gov/preliminaryfloodhazarddata.

    Flood hazards are dynamic and change frequently for many reasons, including weather patterns, erosion and community development. Officials from FEMA, Imperial, Riverside (via the Coachella Valley Water District), and San Diego counties worked together to collect new data and provide updated information about alluvial fans in the Oasis drainage area to better reflect the flood risk. These changes may also affect future building standards or insurance requirements.

    The local mapping project is part of a national effort led by FEMA to increase local knowledge of flood risks and support actions to address and reduce the effects of flooding on new and improved structures. FEMA encourages residents to review the preliminary flood maps to learn about local flood risks, potential future flood insurance requirements and identify any concerns or questions about the information provided.

    Risk of flooding affects almost every corner of the nation. In total, 98% of counties have experienced a flood event, which makes floods the most common and widespread of all weather-related natural disasters.

    For more information, contact Imperial County at (442) 265-1736 or jim.minnick@co.imperial.ca.us, Riverside County via the Coachella Valley Water District at (760) 398-2651 or SStrosnider@cvwd.org, or San Diego County at (858) 495-5417 or Mehdi.Khalili@sdcounty.ca.gov.

  • Federal Assistance for California Wildfires Tops $103M
    Federal Assistance for California Wildfires Tops $103M

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Since historic wildfires swept across the State of California in 2020, more than $103 million in federal disaster assistance has been disbursed to help homeowners, renters and businesses recover, with more than 95 percent of those who lost their homes placed in temporary housing.

    Here is a snapshot of the Individual Assistance disaster-recovery effort as of Feb. 16, 2021:

    More than 41,600 Californians have contacted FEMA for information or registered for assistance with FEMA and more than $26.8 million in aid has been approved for them. Housing Assistance approved: more than $20.9 million Other Needs Assistance approved: more than $5.9 million The U.S. Small Business Administration has approved nearly $76.2 million in low-interest disaster loans to businesses, private nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters. To date, 657 loans have been approved: 592 home loans and 65 business loans. FEMA operated 27 Mobile Recovery Intake Centers in the affected areas. During their operation, more than 4,665 survivors visited the centers to register for disaster assistance and receive information and advice for their recovery.

    Residents in Butte and Siskiyou counties eligible for FEMA’s Direct Housing Program who opted for temporary housing, such as travel trailers and manufactured housing units, have been placed in existing mobile home parks. More than 75 percent of disaster survivors who chose the direct lease option have been matched with a place to live and are moving into apartments.

    A Housing Task Force, created to implement FEMA’s Direct Housing Program, focused on locating temporary housing solutions for eligible survivors in Butte and Siskiyou counties. The task force worked with vendors to secure apartment units and matched survivors to units and locations that meet their family’s needs. 

    Survivors in Siskiyou County have been placed in travel trailers in commercial parks. In Butte County, survivors have been placed in temporary housing in commercial parks and apartments. This was the most efficient and quickest way to get survivors into temporary housing solutions, keeping them as close to home as possible. 

    Wildfire survivors receiving rental assistance for temporary housing through FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program must let FEMA know if they have a continuing need. Extensions on rental assistance may be granted for three-month periods, up to a maximum of 18 months from the date of the presidential declarations: Aug. 22, 2020, for Disaster 4558 and Oct. 16, 2020, for Disaster 4569.

    Rental assistance is for paying rent, including a security deposit, at a place other than your damaged home. To continue to receive it, you must prove an ongoing need, which may be that suitable housing is not available, or that your permanent housing plan has not been completed through no fault of your own.

    Two federal disasters were declared for California wildfires in 2020. The first was DR-4558-CA for August/September wildfires in the counties of Butte, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Monterey, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Trinity, Tulare and Yolo. The second was DR-4569-CA for later fires in the counties of Fresno, Los Angeles, Madera, Mendocino, Napa, San Bernardino, San Diego, Shasta, Siskiyou and Sonoma.

    There is still time for small businesses to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). For Disaster 4558 (the 1st Disaster) the deadline to apply for an EIDL in these counties is May 24, 2021.  For Disaster 4569 (the 2nd Disaster) the deadline to apply for an EIDL in these counties is July 16, 2021.

    Applicants may apply online, receive additional disaster assistance information and download applications at disasterloanassistance.sba.gov. Applicants may also call SBA’s Customer Service Center at (800) 659-2955 or email disastercustomerservice@sba.gov for more information on SBA disaster assistance. Individuals who are deaf or hard‑of‑hearing may call (800) 877-8339. Completed applications should be mailed to U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX  76155.

    Survivors who registered for assistance with FEMA should continue to track their cases and notify the agency of changes to their mailing or email addresses or phone numbers, and to report insurance settlements or additional damage discovered since their home inspection.

    Here’s how to reach FEMA:

    Online at DisasterAssistance.gov. Download the FEMA app to a smartphone or tablet. Call 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585) between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. PST, seven days a week. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, Innocaption or CapTel, should provide FEMA with the specific number assigned to that service when they register. Multilingual operators are available.

    FEMA’s Public Assistance (PA) grant program provides federal assistance to state and local governments and certain types of private nonprofit organizations following a presidential disaster declaration. As of Feb. 5, there have been 160 eligible Requests for Public Assistance (RPAs).

    Through the program, FEMA provides supplemental federal disaster grant assistance for debris removal, life-saving emergency protective measures and the repair, replacement or restoration of disaster-damaged publicly owned facilities and the facilities of certain private nonprofit organizations. The PA program benefits everyone – neighborhoods, towns, cities, counties, states and their residents. PA funds are used for projects to renovate classrooms, refurbish hospitals, restore parks and repair public transportation systems so students can go to safe schools, doctors and nurses can provide medical care, and families can enjoy the outdoors in public parks. The federal share of Public Assistance is at least 75 percent of the eligible cost.

  • Photos of Federally Supported Community Vaccination Center Opening
    Photos of Federally Supported Community Vaccination Center Opening

    WASHINGTON—Acting FEMA Administrator Bob Fenton attended the opening of the first Community Vaccination Center in California yesterday—at California State University in Los Angeles, as another pilot Community Vaccination Center also opened yesterday in Oakland, California. Both centers are focusing on vaccinating underserved and historically marginalized communities and are designed to administer up to 6,000 vaccines a day. FEMA is providing resources as well as operational and federal staffing support.

    "We've taken the idea of these [centers] from the drawing board to implementation in a matter of weeks, and this is the first of many [centers] we want to establish in partnership with state, tribes, territories, and local governments,” said Fenton. "On a pilot basis, FEMA is providing support to open new, large vaccination [centers] that are substantially staffed and supported by the federal government, with support from our state partners."

    So far, FEMA has announced additional pilot centers in Texas and New York to open in the coming weeks.

    FEMA has now obligated more than $3.39 billion to states, tribes, territories and Washington, D.C., for community vaccination centers. As the number of states with obligations increases, we will work alongside other federal agencies to provide federal support for critical staffing, supplies and other shortfalls that can help get more people vaccinated.
