There is still time for Sonoma County homeowners and business owners impacted by the North Bay fires, who may have missed the initial December 11th deadline, to apply for a low-interest disaster loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Residents are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.  

Homeowners may qualify for up to $200,000 for home damage. Homeowners and renters can apply for up to $40,000 to replace personal property.  

Survivors of the October 2017 wildfires have one week left to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for disaster assistance and to apply for a low-interest disaster loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). 

The deadline for both is Dec. 11, 2017 for those with losses. 

A Disaster Recovery Center (DRC), jointly operated by the State of California’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), has opened in Santa Rosa to offer residents affected by the devastating October 2017 wildfires a one-stop-shop for disaster assistance. The DRC is a continuation of the locally led assistance center that opened in the early days of the fire response. 

The center is in the Press Democrat Building at 427 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa, CA 95410, and will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.

The LACs will close at 7:00pm Saturday, November 11th and re-open at 9:00am on Sunday, November 12th as DRCs.
