California is only halfway through its fire season, yet the fires the state has been plagued with over the past month have ruined thousands of acres of land and caused many evacuations. Recently, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the launch of RESPONSE.CA.GOV, a state website supplying Californians, who have been impacted by wildfires and utility-directed power shutoffs, with the proper tools and resources needed for wildfire recovery. This portal houses local and state resources, health services, shelters and housing, preparedness information, and more.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture also has several agencies offering financial and/or technical assistance to farmers, ranchers and rural landowners recovering from natural disasters, such as wildfires.
