Contra Costa County Storm Damage Survey: Input Requested by Fri, Jan 27
Posted on 01/23/2023

Due to recent storms, Contra Costa County has an Emergency Proclamation that sets the County up to qualify for Individual Assistance (IA). At this time, Contra Costa County has not qualified for Individual Assistance from CAL OES or FEMA. To qualify, the County has to demonstrate a significant impact on private property. Then the County will get a “Major Disaster Declaration.” The County has applied for this designation.

To demonstrate private property impacts, residents and businesses need to report storm damage by Friday, January 27.

Contra Costa County also has a disaster recovery page on the County website where residents can find more info: Storm Response 2023 Disaster Recovery

What you should do if you have damage to your property: Those who have experienced personal property damage, please contact your insurance company first to determine what resources might be available. Keep track of the damages and take photos of structural and content damage. The County is also looking into available resources. Please note that Public Works does not remove debris or clean up private property. 

Reporting damage to your property: It is very important for the County to gather data on damage to private property to determine if the county will qualify for individual and Small Business Administration (SBA) aid.

For more information, including plans for future financial assistance please go to the County's Storm FAQs page.
