Earthquake: Apply

If you’d like to apply to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund, please read the below information.

Update: Thursday, January 15, 2015

Napa County residents have until March 31, 2015 to apply to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund (the Fund) for grants to help repair structural damage to homes and mobile homes, as well as physical and economic losses to small businesses, stemming from the August 24, 2014 South Napa Earthquake.  The prior deadline for these rebuilding programs had been January 16.

The maximum grant awards for qualified homeowners and business owners has been increased, along with the program’s income guidelines for homeowners. The maximum grant award for homeowners is now $20,000 instead of $10,000; and grants are available to qualified households at or below 300% of Area Median Income (AMI) instead of 200% of AMI–a change that reflects the very high cost of housing in Napa County.  The maximum grant award for small business owners is now $25,000, an increase from the prior amount of $15,000.

To be eligible for a grant, homeowners and mobile homeowners must demonstrate that they have been declined for a Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster loan, or have losses that exceed their approved SBA loan amounts.  Small business owners must demonstrate that they have been declined for an SBA disaster loan, or a loan from a private lender, or have losses which exceed their approved SBA/bank loan amounts. Those who have already received rebuilding grants from the Fund may apply for additional support based on the new maximum grant amounts.

Homeowners may apply online by visiting this website to download and complete an application.  Please note that copies of your FEMA and SBA forms may be required to complete the application process.  For assistance with your application:
