DISASTER LOAN ASSISTANCE FOR CACHE FIRE SURVIVORS
Great news! The City of Clearlake has been working with the State of California and the Small Business Administration and an SBA disaster declaration was issued for the Cache Fire yesterday! SBA will begin outreach to survivors of the Cache Fire informing them of the disaster program and how to apply for disaster assistance.
FREE DEBRIS AND HAZARDOUS TREE REMOVAL FOR CACHE FIRE SURVIVORS
Click here for press release with full details.
In order to be eligible, impacted property owners must complete and submit an ROE (Right of Entry) Form which can be found here.
ROE Forms were originally due October 6th but are still being accepted at this time.
Property Owners are legally responsible for debris cleanup; therefore the City of Clearlake and NCO encourage all Cache Fire survivors whose property was severely burned to take advantage of this free cleanup opportunity. Property Owners who do not take advantage are responsible for debris removal and all associated costs. Residents who lived in the areas impacted but whose homes were not severely damaged, or those who were renting, are not required to attend or submit an ROE.
Please submit completed forms to City Hall located at 14050 Lakeshore Drive, Clearlake, CA, 95422 or email completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org.
