SACRAMENTO — The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) today announced the approval in February of $8,457.90  in California Disaster Assistance Act (CDAA 2022-08) funding to help  El Dorado County cover eligible costs it incurred in response to the Mosquito Fire.

The bulk of the funding approved by Cal OES — $7,689 — represents the state’s 75-percent share of the $10,252 in costs related to performing evacuations, closing roads and conducting other response activities.    The remaining $768.90  in CDAA 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.

A state of emergency proclaimed by Governor Gavin Newsom’s State of Emergency for the Heat Dome and Wildfires, made El Dorado County eligible for CDAA funding.
