Residential Ignition Resistant Improvement Program

This program aims to provide financial assistance for eligible improvements that enhance the resilience of homes that withstood the Camp Fire in the Town of Paradise, ultimately making them more fire resistant and safer for their occupants.

The program is limited to $90,000 in improvements per property. The property owner is responsible for 25% of the total cost of improvements.
