Firefighters continue fighting a blaze off Pawnee Road and New Long Valley Road, northeast of Clearlake Oaks in Lake county. Evacuations are still in place for all residents of Spring Valley. As of 2:00 Monday, June 25, the fire has burned 8200 acres with 0% containment. The total number of structures destroyed is 22. 

What is the purpose of the Wildfire Relief Fund?

The Wildfire Relief Fund seeks to assist those facing hardship by providing direct monetary aid to people who have suffered a direct loss as a result of the fires.

In 2015, North Coast Opportunities, Inc. (NCO) worked with other area organizations in response to the Rocky, Jerusalem, and Valley Fires. In 2016, NCO re-opened the fund in response to the Clayton Fire. In 2017, the fund was re-opened for those impacted by fires in Mendocino and Lake Counties. Now, in 2018, the fund has been reopened in response to the 2018 Pawnee Fire currently burning in Lake County.

What type of assistance is given?

Relief will be disbursed in the form of cash grants. Grants will be awarded by committee determination and/or through our Disaster Case Managers. The amount of relief given is determined by the amount of donations recieved. Those determined to have the greatest need will be given a higher priority in the process.
