Cal OES Announces Approval of More than $583,000 in CDAA Funding to Help Placer County Cover December 2021 Winter Storms Response Costs


SACRAMENTO — The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) today announced the approval last month of $583,456.50 in California Disaster Assistance Act (CDAA) funding to help Placer County cover eligible costs of clearing roadways and access to public facilities made roadways impassable by the record-setting snowfall generated by the December 2021 Winter Storms.

The bulk of the funding approved by Cal OES — $530,415 – represents the state’s share of eligible costs incurred by the county’s Department of Public Works to address the impassable roadways, downed trees and disrupted that resulted from the storms and record-setting snowfall they produced in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Placer County.

The remaining $53,041 in funding approved for the county will help it cover administrative costs related to the county’s response.

CDAA payments are provided based on actual costs incurred by the county and provided by the state as work is completed and as documentation and requests for payment are submitted to Cal OES.

Governor Gavin Newsom’s State of Emergency Proclamation for the Placer County in conjunction with the storms authorized CDAA reimbursements for Placer County and other eligible entities.
