UPDATE 06/01/2021: We are currently offering grants of up to $5,000 to those that lost homes in the 2020 wildfires in Mendocino County. These ‘Critical Needs’ grants are designed to remove a barrier to stable, safe, long-term housing and are open to homeowners and renters. These grants may be used for rebuilding costs, rental assistance, utility connections, replacing furnishings, and more. These grants require no repayment, are provided by donated dollars in our community, and are not reported to any government entity. 

To apply for a Critical Needs Grant, or determine support services available to you, please call our case managers at North Coast Opportunities (NCO) at 707-621-8817, email mendoassist@ncoinc.org or apply online here and select "Mendocino County Fire Relief - MROC" in the "Apply for Programs" tab. 

NCO is committed to supporting the needs of fire survivors from the Mendocino County wildfires of 2017 and 2018. Since 2017 NCO has been administering assistance through our disaster case management process.

NCO Disaster Relief Fund

The Disaster Relief Fund seeks to assist those facing hardship by providing monetary aid to people who have suffered a direct loss in Lake or Mendocino Counties as a result of a disaster.

In 2015, NCO worked with other area organizations in response to the Rocky, Jerusalem, and Valley Fires which burned in Lake County. In 2016, NCO re-opened the fund in response to the Clayton Fire, also in Lake County. In 2017, the fund opened again for those impacted by the Redwood Fire in Mendocino County and the Sulphur Fire in Lake County.

The fund will now remain open to support long term recovery for those who have been affected by a disaster in both Lake and Mendocino counties.
