Disaster Assistance Resource Guide


The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) and the California Health and Human Services Agency (CalHHS), through the Priority Populations Taskforce, developed a Disaster Assistance Resource Guide (PDF), providing both disaster and non-disaster related information regarding federal, state, and local assistance services available in California. Although some of the resources are restricted to individuals or households with eligible immigration status, there are many services available to all Californians impacted by disasters.
