U.S. Labor Department giving up to $7m for recovery after California storms
This is for the California Employment Development Department to create temporary jobs in clean-up and recovery efforts after severe storms affected several southern counties from January 18-23, 2017.
The project’s recovery activities target seven of the eligible counties: Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, San Mateo and Santa Barbara.
The funds will provide for temporary employment on projects to assist with clean-up, demolition, repair, renovation and reconstruction of destroyed public structures, facilities and lands within the affected communities.
They will support delivery of humanitarian aid and safety assistance as needed. ■
