Additional Resources

Wildfire Relief Fund

The Wildfire Relief Fund is a joint effort through United Way of Wine Country, North Coast Opportunities, Redwood Credit Union, The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire. Funding will be divided between counties based on need and donor intent. The Wildfire Relief Fund is part of UWWC’s Emergency Relief Fund and seeks to assist those facing hardship by providing direct monetary aid to families and individuals who have suffered loss as a result of the fires. Relief will be disbursed in the form of cash grants after family and individual relief assistance applications are reviewed and approved by a volunteer committee. Families/individuals determined by the volunteer review committee to have the greatest need will be given highest priority in the application review process. Relief grants are intended to meet immediate needs such as:  clothing, shelter, transportation, food, and home cleanup/repair. Grants will be given to applicants based on available relief funds.
