CDFA has created a centralized portal for wildfire recovery assets as flames rip through the state.
The webpage includes links to relief and recovery resources at the state and national level, including emergency response information from the state that includes “local and state resources, healthy services, shelters and housing, preparedness information, and more.”
There’s also links to USDA programs ranging from disaster assistance and recovery to more information on programs offered by the department’s Farm Service Agency and Risk Management Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service and Rural Development offices.
