Protect your home against earthquakes! Register for Brace + Bolt Grant Program

Posted on February 7, 2024


Registration is now open through February 21, 2024.

The City of Santa Ana has been included in the State of California’s Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) grant program for the first time. As part of the program, residents with homes built before 1980 may be eligible to receive up to $3,000 toward a seismic retrofit through the program. Also EBB is now offering EBB Supplemental Grants for additional funding above the $3,000 EBB grant to help income-eligible homeowners complete a brace + bolt retrofit.

Homeowners could be eligible to receive this grant if they:

  • Own and live in the house in zip codes 92701, 92703, 92704, 92705, 92706, or 92707
  • Own a home that was built before 1980
  • Have a house with a raised foundation or crawl space under the house
  • Have not already completed a “brace and bolt” earthquake retrofit

Qualifying homeowners are selected through a random drawing and are then notified if they have been selected, or have been placed on the waiting list. Registration is only open for a limited period of time once per year, so eligible homeowners are encouraged to register soon.

For more information on the EBB grant program and how to register, please visit the Earthquake Brace and Bolt website.
