SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services continue moving ahead with the Temporary Housing sites being constructed in Butte County. The sites under construction will support those households affected by the November Camp Fire.

If you were impacted by the Camp Fire and previously registered with FEMA, please contact us if your current housing situation has changed. We also encourage those who registered for assistance to continue to update their contact information: address, phone, etc. This can be done by logging into www.disasterassistance.gov or calling 800-621-3362. Operators are available from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week.

Due to the lack of affordable housing in Butte County, FEMA continues to proceed with the construction of three additional Temporary Housing Communities. The Rosewood site, in the City of Oroville, is the first site completed, and to-date has 39 of 40 Temporary Housing units occupied. FEMA continues to lease hundreds of pads in commercial mobile home and recreational vehicle sites to house eligible households. Remember! It’s important for FEMA to have current contact information.
