In light of the recent 5.1 earthquake, we wanted to share a state program that can help you pay for and earthquake retrofit.
Registration is now open for Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) and closes November 29, 2022.
Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) helps homeowners lessen the potential for damage during an earthquake by offering qualified homeowners a grant for up to $3,000 toward a building code-compliant earthquake retrofit. EBB is also offering a Supplemental Grant to homeowners with a household annual income of $72,080 or less as funding permits.
A few MIA neighbors have taken advantage of this program as a part of a remodel or just as a way to provide some extra piece of mind for when the big one hits.
You can register at EarthquakeBraceBolt.com. The process is quicker and less expensive than you might think.
The EBB Program was developed by the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES).
