Rep. Thompson Releases Fire Recovery Guide
Santa Rosa, CA – Today, Congressman Mike Thompson (CA-05) released a fire recovery guide to help those affected by the Northern California Fires find and apply for the resources available to them to help them recover.
“Our region has experienced the worst fires in California’s history. These fires forced thousands of people to evacuate their communities, destroyed thousands of homes, and left many families with nothing,” said Rep. Thompson. “This guide will help individuals, families, and businesses navigate the resources available to them to get our community back on its feet.
“Our recovery is only just beginning. Please know I am committed to working with our local, state and federal officials to ensure that the federal government provides all necessary resources to support our community in this time of recovery. And, I stand ready to help expedite any support and resources that our communities need to rebuild and repair our homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Should you need anything, my staff and I are here to help.”
The guide can be found here and includes information about all the current resources available to victims, including FEMA assistance, tax relief under the Internal Revenue Service and Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, and Small Business Administration loans. The guide will be updated when and if more resources become available.
