Grants available for homes damaged by 2022 wildfires in Coconino and Yavapai counties
Federal officials say grants are now available to assist residents in Coconino and Yavapai counties repair their homes that were damaged by wildfires last summer.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, state and local governments, tribes and nonprofit groups can apply for up to $50,000 to recover from the Crooks Fire near Prescott and the Pipeline and Tunnel fires near Flagstaff.
The homes must be located in eligible rural communities and within presidentially declared disaster areas.
The grants must be submitted by June 5. Individual homeowners aren’t eligible to apply for the funding and are encouraged to seek help through the Rural Disaster Home Repair Grant Program.
