The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services remains activated and continues in coordination with state and local partners to provide recovery resources to our community following two significant earthquakes affecting the county.
NEW RECOVERY RESOURCES
Clean Up Assistance
Humboldt County residents impacted by the December 20 and January 1 earthquakes may now be eligible for free cleanup and muck out assistance, facilitated through Crisis Cleanup.
Residents who sustained property damage and are in need of clean up assistance are encouraged to contact the county’s Recovery Line at 707-441-5000. As part of this program, assistance requests will be logged into the Crisis Cleanup system. Reputable and vetted relief agencies will then have the opportunity to review the request in the system and respond to assist residents as able. All services are free, but service is not guaranteed due to the expected overwhelming need.
The Recovery Line (707-441-5000) continues to connect local residents impacted by the earthquake with temporary sheltering accommodations. Individuals whose homes have been inspected and tagged by local building inspectors, or who have questions regarding earthquake-related sheltering assistance, are encouraged to contact this line to discuss eligibility and sheltering options.
Virtual Town Hall Regarding State Assistance
Senate Majority Leader Mike McGuire, Assemblymember Jim Wood, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services and the California Department of Housing & Community Development have announced $3 million in available funding to aid residents impacted by the December 20 and January 1 earthquakes. Details of the funding will be a focus of an upcoming Earthquake Recovery Town Hall scheduled for Thursday, January 12 at 6:30 pm.
The Earthquake Recovery Town Hall will include additional details regarding the state funding, as well as a comprehensive briefing on recovery programs including the emergency housing that’s currently available for impacted residents, along with services available to assist residents impacted by the earthquake. In addition, officials will provide an update on public infrastructure repairs, discuss on-going needs and focus attention on a soon-to-be established home repair and rental assistance fund.
