Wildfire Recovery

Recovering from a wildfire can be financially and emotionally complex, particularly if the wildfire was catastrophic and caused significant damage. Research has also shown that already vulnerable groups, such as racial and ethnic minorities, are significantly more vulnerable to the effects of natural disasters, including wildfire, leaving them more in need of assistance.


Financial recovery after loss due to wildfire can be confusing and time consuming. The specific type financial need will vary greatly depending on individual circumstances. Many people will need to communicate directly with their insurance company or bank to recoup losses.
