Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) today announced that San Francisco is one of 41 California counties that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has included in its $9.1 million Disaster Recovery Initiative. The money is to help offset certain costs associated with the recovery from the El Nino storms of earlier this year. "In San Francisco, there are still outstanding bills for shelter, personnel and repairs to streets damaged by the relentless storms. This will help local officials who can apply to recover costs that were not initially paid for by funds made available by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Small Business Administration, or the Army Corps of Engineers," Pelosi said.
State officials will determine which applications merit consideration under the terms set forth by HUD. Homeowners in the affected areas, whose homes were significantly damaged by the storms, are also eligible for 100% financing for replacement or reconstruction of their residences through a HUD program.
In addition to San Francisco, the HUD initiative includes the following Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma.
