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.
Homeowner registration is currently closed. Check back in June to see where EBB will be offered next.

*$3,000 may not cover all costs. A typical retrofit can cost between $2,000 and $10,000.
PLEASE NOTE: Earthquake Brace + Bolt has issued clarifications to its Program Rules,
including sections that cover Tax Reporting, Section 1.4, and under Terms and Conditions, Annex 1.
