I'm sure there are a number of "structures" in WW which qualify.

If you have an opportunity and you have a "crawl space" under your home, you can check to see if your "base plate" is attached to the foundation! If it isn't, perhaps you should have a local contractor check it for you and if it is not, check to see if you qualify for the grant.

 In Today's Update: Earthquake retrofit grant available to homeowners

Earthquakes, large or small, can occur at any time. In a damaging earthquake, will your house remain on its foundation? Are you prepared? The California Residential Mitigation Program has created a way for you, the homeowner, to help protect your property and your loved ones.

Through the Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) program, you may register for a grant of up to $3,000 to seismically retrofit your home. This program aims to help homeowners lessen the potential for damage to their houses during an earthquake by "bracing" the crawl space, when necessary, and "bolting" the house to its foundation. Income-eligible homeowners also may apply for supplemental grants that could provide up to 100 percent of the retrofit costs. Homeowners can apply for grants online during the registration period, which extends from October 18 through November 29, 2022.

Thanks to additional funding from FEMA that is administered by Cal OES, EBB grants will be available to homeowners in 521 ZIP Codes this year.

To date, more than 17,500 Californians have retrofitted their homes with grant funding from EBB. Learn more, find out if you qualify, and register at EarthquakeBraceBolt.com.

Resources are available at EBBTools.com for you to share the program with your neighbors, constituents, colleagues, or others,

Please confirm if zip codes in your jurisdiction are eligible here: https://www.earthquakebracebolt.com/Contractors-Design-Professionals/What-You-Need-to-Know/EBB-Program-ZIP-Codes.
