Assistance is available for demolition, reconstruction, and tenant-based rental assistance (TBRA) for wildfire disaster victims. These funds are made available through a reservation system.
HOME funds are available in non-participating jurisdictions only. HOME provides funding for TBRA for a 24 month period for households at or below 80% Area Median Family Income (AMFI) in the form of a grant. Funding for Homeowner Rehabilitation Assistance (HRA), which can provide for demolition and reconstruction of housing destroyed or damaged in the disaster, is available for households at or below 80% AMFI in the form of a conditional grant or a deferred forgivable loan, dependant on program requirements.
NSP funds are available for demolition in the form of a grant for eligible census tracts. Additional funding is available for reconstruction of housing for households at or below 120% AMFI in the form of a loan.
