EBB is offering an additional Supplemental Grant (SG) to income-eligible homeowners.

The maximum amount of the grant depends on the type of retrofit you are doing and where your house is located.

“This week, as we remember the devastating effects of the Northridge earthquake 30 years ago, it is a profound reminder that earthquakes are unpredictable and potentially life-altering,” said Christine Parra, Culver City Fire Department’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. “Making preparedness a priority will allow families and individuals to make more rational decisions in times of high stress.

Making a plan, having a kit, taking proactive measures, like participating in a Brace and Bolt program, will also add to your personal preparedness by lessening the potential for earthquake damage to your home.”For more information about the EBB program, visit the Earthquake Brace and Bolt website.
