The Butte Strong Found has committed an additional $1 million in grants, this week, for Camp Fire recovery.
According to a press release from the North Valley Community Foundation:
$500,000 was granted to the Butte County Fire Safe Council to keep tree removal projects moving before the rainy season hits.
$200,000 was provided for caseworker positions because, according to the North Valley Community Foundation, there weren't enough government funded positions to address the need.
Adventist Health Feather River received a $49,000 grant to help pay for a facility to allow ambulance service to return to Paradise.
Grants were also given to assist recovery centers in the upper ridge area and a meeting space in Concow.
