If an earthquake happened today, would your house stay on its foundation?
Would you be willing to make simple retrofits to strengthen your house and potentially protect it from earthquake damage?
The Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) program offers homeowners up to $3,000* to cover costs associated with retrofitting their house to lessen earthquake damage.
EBB is expanding to additional ZIP Codes in 2015.
Registration is open from January 15, 2015 through February 15, 2015
Complete the prequalification survey to see if you are eligible to participate in the program.
