Seven counties named in Major Wildfire Disaster Declaration
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – In spite of their political differences, Governor Newsom said Friday he’s grateful for President Trump’s quick response to California’s request for a Major Wildfire Disaster Declaration.
It will help fire-impacted victims in San Bernardino, San Diego, Los Angeles and four other California counties. They will be eligible for crisis counseling, housing and unemployment assistance and legal services.
The declaration also provides federal assistance to help state, tribal and local governments fund emergency response, recovery and protective measures.
